Tourism

Schoharie County’s charming historic towns, incredible natural attractions and quiet country roads attract thousands of tourists (who spend around $47.3 million each year). Travelers find plenty to discover at destinations, shops, restaurants and events.

Schoharie County captures classic American living in a scenic setting like no place else in Upstate New York.

A healthy tourism industry revolves around fairs, festivals, natural wonders, historic sites, educational farm tours and family-fun-filled/must-see attractions like six-million-year-old caves and 100-foot underground waterfalls. There are museums displaying artifacts dating back hundreds of years and the state and national registers of historic places recognize numerous sites.

Tourism businesses can be eligible for state grants, which the Schoharie Grow Team can assist with.
