Our area has a rich heritage and I have highlighted some of the wonderful opportunities for tourism and recreation in Fulton, Montgomery, Saratoga and Schenectady counties. Filled with history, architectural treasures, geological wonders and natural beauty, this area offers many interesting attractions for both tourists and residents.
I'd like to share with you some of these special places, and I encourage you to discover -- or rediscover -- many of the resources in our own backyard. Along the way, be sure to stop in and support our many fine local restaurants, shops and other attractions.
The following list contains links to websites highlighting historical sites and museums. I do recommend calling ahead to confirm the hours of operation.
