NY promotes sustainable tourism in online guide

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York state is promoting sustainable tourism.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says a new online guide to sustainable travel in New York State will include bookable itineraries. The guide debuting Wednesday takes advantage of the trend of tourists trying to minimize their impact on the environment and local culture.

The New York guide is being produced in partnership with responsibletravel.com. A section of the tour operator's website will feature eco-tourism activities in every region of New York state.

State officials say the site will include things like exploring Amish culture or bicycling along former Erie Canal tow-paths.

The site will give information on the culture, history and ecology of each region.

A preview of the new guide is at: www.responsibletravel.com/holidays/new-york-state/travel-guide.
