The Tiny New York Town That Transforms Into A Watermelon Wonderland Each Year

In New York, it isn’t just the warm weather that makes us anxiously waiting around for summer’s arrival — it’s also the food! Our favorite local farms begin to open up their stands for the year, and we begin to find ourselves uncontrollably drooling over the thought of things like fresh strawberries, peaches, and best of all… watermelon! Turning one tiny town into a total dreamland, mark your calendars and set aside this summer weekend when New York is the host of an amazing watermelon festival.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
