Experience modern cities and historical sites in Mohawk Valley.
The Mohawk Valley region encompasses industrialized cities like Utica and Rome, and heavily forested wilderness areas that are part of New York’s Adirondack Park.
The northern section, which extends into the Adirondack Park, is popular with anglers, boaters, campers, hunters and skiers. Great Sacandaga Lake and Oneida Lake are popular boating destinations, along with the state canal system. Residents and visitors enjoy museums like the Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute in Utica and the Adirondack Museum at Blue Mountain Lake as well as Revolutionary War historic sites and Howe Caverns, a well-known geologic attraction in rural Schoharie County.
