' Coyote Moon Vineyards - Ranked #2 Tourism Destination in Northern New York!
Ranked #2 Tourism Destination in Northern New York!
09/02/2015
Just as some Arizonans never visit the Grand Canyon, or some Seattle residents have never ridden to the top of the Space Needle, Northern New York has numerous treasures that sometimes are overlooked by people who have lived here for decades. As the tourism season heats up this summer, the Times has compiled a list of some of the region’s must-see destinations — even for locals.
Staff members at chamber of commerce locations in Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties were asked to recommend top locations for visitors to see, and why. After reviewing the list, the Times ranked five attractions across the three-county region. As part of the criteria for the ranking, at least one destination was selected from each county.




2. COYOTE MOON VINEYARDS (town of Clayton)

Touring wineries in the north country is a must for those who want to sample a wide range of wines made from cold-hardy grapes, and Coyote Moon Vineyards on East Line Road arguably is among the most popular wineries in the region. The winery, which opened a store earlier this year in Watertown’s Salmon Run Mall, draws a steady stream of visitors with special events and new products. It recently began selling sweet wines packaged in cans, for example, and it hosts two-hour scenic cruises of the Thousand Islands area from late June through mid-September. The cruise, which leaves from Coyote Moon’s Wine and Craft Beer lounge at 6:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, showcases award-winning wines that customers have a chance to sample before they leave shore. While on board, they’re able to bring a bottle of wine and munch on cheese and crackers provided by 1000 Islands River Rat Cheese, Clayton. Admission is $39.95.
