Plan Your Visit

Part of the mission of the Route 20 Association is to work to protect, preserve, interpret and promote the assets of the 108 miles of the Route 20 Scenic Byway and within the 6,500 square miles of the Scenic Byway Corridor. With open land, historic communities, unique architecture and beautiful views bring such significant assets, our work is centered on increasing the awareness and sustainability of the wonderful communities and unique businesses throughout one of the most scenic areas and along one of the most historic drives in New York State. We are thankful for the support of our members and particularly grateful to the many businesses that sponsor our efforts. We encourage you to support our members and sponsors in every way you can.
