With all the negative news we hear about this area, sometimes it's easy to forget that we're truly lucky to live in such an amazing place.

This isn't going to be a list of the best things in Central New York. As a resident, you already know some of the great reasons why living in this area is so unique. This is all about one simple thing - One experience that happens every single day.

On my way home from work, I started looking at all the scenery around me. Something that we take for granted on a daily basis. It's easy to not notice the little things that make this area great - Including all the beauty. On my way home, on a cloudy kind of 'meh' day, I stared out at the view and was reminded of how amazing this area really is.

Pictures never do it justice. But to see the hills and the valleys in this area, even on a cloudy day, even without the leaves on the trees - and it's still beautiful? We really are so lucky to live in this area.
