Utica, Rome, and the surrounding area has so much to offer visitors to Central New York. I asked around and found the top 10 things visitors MUST do on a trip to this wonderfully unique area.

I'm actually getting prepared for my family to come visit the Central New York area. They have never been here before (besides my dad who helped me move in - and ended up stuck in that snowstorm in Buffalo), so there's tons I want them to see. The only problem is they're only going to be here for a few days.

I asked around the office today - especially those who have lived in Central New York all (or most) of their lives - What are the top things for visitors to do when they come here.

This was the response I got back, and I'm thinking I should try to get my family to do ALL of it. It would be a packed few days, but it would be an awesome way to show off a lot that Central New York has to offer!

I haven't been to a Saranac Thursday yet - so that would be new to my family and to me! What are some other things you think my family should check out while they're in Central New York?
