New York, NY (PRWEB) September 8, 2009
EscapeMaker.com, the online guide to local weekend getaways, food festivals and day trips within a day's drive or train ride of New York City, has launched the Fall edition of its webisode series, "Tastes of New York State."
The third in a four-part series, the Fall video showcases areas around the state which offer fresh and locally-grown autumn food favorites. From the Buffalo Wing Festival in Buffalo to the Cream Cheese Festival in Lowville, there's a food themed event for every taste.
"From the Great Pumpkin Farm in Clarence with its Halloween themed weekends to The Lobster Bake and Harbor Fest in Sag Harbor, the Fall edition of "Tastes of New York State" will whet the appetites of travelers who want to explore the fine agri-tourism getaways our great state offers," said Caylin Sanders, CEO and President of EscapeMaker.com. "Given that agriculture and tourism are two of the state's top industries, we hope to inspire people to take day trips and weekend getaways to places all over New York that feature a unique agri-focus."
Each seasonally themed-themed video takes a culinary tour of New York State and provides ideas for unique agri-tourism getaways. Host Marissa Copeland narrates as she samples culinary delights from around the state, including the Greater Niagara Region, Lewis County in the Adirondacks, Madison County in the Central Leatherstocking Region, the Hudson Valley's Dutchess County and the Town of Southampton on Long Island. The webisodes were made possible with a grant from the New York State Department of Agriculture and markets and produced by the award-winning Factory Films Inc.
