We love the Mohawk Valley!

If you love the outdoors, beautiful scenery, and lots going on, you’ve come to the right place. The Mohawk Valley Region, located along the Mohawk River in the ancestral lands of the Kanienʼkehá:ka’ (Mohawk) and Oneida, is nestled between the Catskills and the Adirondacks. People from all over the world flock to this area to explore the history, outdoors, architecture and the wonderful cities, towns and villages located throughout the six-county region.
