Our Community and Area

Whether it is spring, summer, fall or winter, there are many sites and adventures to experience. Enjoy the many art, music, lumberjack, harvest and various event festivals and the famous Delaware County Fair. Take an afternoon drive through our quaint, historical villages and rural landscape dotted with old farms, covered bridges, and beautiful mountains with magnificent views. Enjoy fresh grown produce from a local farm stand, or try one of our “farm-to-table” restaurant venues. Cast a line for some of the best fishing in the U.S. or kayak any of our lakes, reservoirs, and nearly 1,000 miles of waterways threaded through the area. In Fall enjoy breathtaking foliage and take advantage of the surrounding 1000+ acres of State and City land for hiking and horseback riding; and in Winter, enjoy down-hill skiing at one of our ski centers or take advantage of hundreds of miles of trails for cross-country skiing, snow shoeing or snowmobiling.

Our area has also become a cultural haven for artists. Microbreweries and agritourism have become popular, along with our already famous local ciders and maple syrup produce. Take a step back in time and visit some of the area’s modern day general stores and historical societies, enjoy a Civil War reenactment, or plan a stay at a local farm to experience hands-on farming and other activities.

We invite you to visit and experience this peace of paradise we call home.
