  • 1. Sherrill
    Sherrill, New York

    My hometown, Sherrill is the self proclaimed smallest city in New York state. Famous for ... well ... not much, Sherrill is a great place for families, and has tons of parks for kids!

  • 2. Turning Stone Casino
    Turning Stone Resort Casino, Verona, New York

    If you feel the need to roll the dice or play the (electronic) slots, the Turning Stone is the place to go. Set in the middle of absolutely nowhere, this reservation casino has gotten huge over the years, with a great golf course and good entertainment.

  • 3. Carrier dome in Syracuse

    Rabid fans go to the carrier dome to watch Syracuse basketball and football games. With no pro sports, the area really gets behind the team.

  • 4. Sylvan Beach
    Sylvan Beach, New York

    In the early part of the century, up until airling travel became prominent, sylvan beach was THE place to escape to for NYC folks. A few movies were shot there, and several celebraties spent the summer on the beach. Now, just a shell of it's former self.

  • 5. International Boxing Hall of Fame
    International Boxing Hall of Fame, Canastota, New York

    Right off the thruway, the boxing hall of fame is in one of the weirdest places ever for a hall of fame. No real good reason to have it here. Odd. But hey, that's upstate NY!

  • 6. Matt Brewing Company
    Matt Brewing Co., Utica, New York

    The locals need something to keep them warm through the winter. Ahhh ... matt's brewing company.

  • 7. Erie Canal Village
    Erie Canal Village, Rome, New York

    Tons of history covered here on the canal that opened up the west, and that provided the last link of interconnected water all the way from the great lakes to NYC.
