Route 20 Scenic Byway


The New York State Scenic Byway designated section of U.S. Route 20 is 108 miles in length, and includes 7 Counties and 27 Municipalities. It is, of course, an important segment of the historic (1927) Transcontinental U.S. Route 20 highway, which is 3,300 miles in length, from the Atlantic Ocean in Massachusetts to the Pacific Coast of Oregon. The Route 20 scenic byway corridor celebrates Central New York's diverse heritage, natural beauty, and agricultural vitality, and is defined by rolling hills and broad vistas framed in a working landscape, lakes, tranquil communities, and historical places. The visitor experience is a reflection of Americana, a slowdown of time from the stir of the city, a chance to imagine how travelers used the corridor through history and an opportunity to explore a working landscape.
