Upstate New York: A Travelogue

Map of Upstate New York

It is debatable what constitutes upstate New York from downstate, but primarily, upstate does not include New York City or Long Island. The goal for my husband and I was to visit family in northwest Massachusetts, cross a corner of Vermont and then head into New York to see the Berkshire, Catskill and Adirondack autumn colors, the Finger Lakes, Niagara Falls, and whatever else we could find along the way. That sounds fairly general, but in actuality, we did plan every day of our trip as we needed to book B&Bs along the way. The slower autumn shoulder season for New York state may be September and October, but that’s exactly when people choose to travel, because the heat has passed and the fall colors are beginning. -excerpt from Travelogue
