Five Great Tourist Attractions That President Obama Missed While in Central New York

President Obama visited Cooperstown on May 22, 2014 to discuss the tourism industry. Of course Cooperstown with its Baseball Hall of Fame, Glimmerglass Opera and quaint downtown makes a perfect destination. But what are some other tourist attractions the president missed while he was in the region?


1

Trenton Falls

 
 

Once as popular as Niagara Falls, Trenton Falls in northern Oneida County is now under private ownership and only opens to the public for four weekends each year. I bet they'd open for a president, if he asked.

 
2

Munson Williams Proctor Arts Instute

 
 

Founded by prominent Utica families of the past, MWPAI is a bastion of fine art in Upstate New York.

 
3

Erie Canal Village

 
 

Erie Canal Village is a living history museum in Rome that chronicles the mid 1800s when trade along the canal flourished.

Bonus: Contained within the park is the historic site of the Revolutionary War-era Fort Bull.

 
4

Madison - Bouckville Antiques Corridor

 
 

Antique shops line US Route 20 between the village of Madison and the hamlet of Bouckville. Summer weekends the area comes alive with treasure hunters.

 
5

Turning Stone Resort Casino

 
 

The biggest engine that drives tourism in Central New York is Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona.
