New Schoharie tourism website

The Schoharie County Planning and Development Department has set up a tourism website, inviting visitors to find “Something Unexpected.”

The website,, was created by ABC Creative Group of Syracuse. It directs tourists to numerous destinations in the county.

“Since most travelers do not pay attention to what county they’re in, we focused more on the areas within Schoharie that may be more familiar to travelers, said Travis Bort, ABC’s owner and creative director. “We concentrated on the quaint towns and villages in each area of the county.”

Users can use an interactive map discover unique places within the county and use a complete

listing to find accommodations, activities and dining. The site is optimized for mobile devices.

For more information about ABC Creative Group and its services, contact Jamie Leszczynski at (315) 471-1002 or email
