A walking tour of a community can reveal so many interesting facts. About the homes, businesses, and people who lived there for many, many years. Upstate New York has a plethora of walking tours available for visitors to enjoy. Here are 11 great ones.
These include a fascinating tour of a historic Naval warship that saw duty in World War II and is now moored in the Hudson River in Albany. You can also take a tour of the 1969 Woodstock concert site in Bethel. The museum there is amazing.

We have also included three spooky walking tours. These have gained in popularity with the advent of the many paranormal television shows now on TV. These ghost tours are so much fun. Usually led by a costumed docent, you will learn the spooky doings of the community and find out the real story behind some unexplainable happenings that have taken place in the homes and cemeteries across upstate New York. Scary, spooky, eerie, and always a great time. Especially the candlelit tours at night!
