5 Romantic Places to Visit in New York State

If you are planning a romantic Valentine’s Day outing in New York State, I have some excellent suggestions on great places to visit for your getaway!

Cooperstown

You might not think the home of professional baseballs Hall of Fame would be a romantic spot, but Cooperstown’s attraction extends beyond baseball.

Fenimore Art Museum offers a look into American folk art, Native American art, and photography from the 19th and 20 centuries. Staying with a historical theme, Hyde Hall offers a look at a former mansion owned by a wealthy English landowner. The estate is located near Ostwego Lake.

Enjoy a casual dinner at the Hawkeye Bar and Grill at the Otesaga Resort. Grab a burger or enjoy a steak or prime rib. You can select a fine wine from the restaurant’s extensive offerings. Calling downtown Cooperstown home, Nicoletta’s Italian Café offers a casual sit-down environment, where you can enjoy authentic Italian dishes featuring homemade pasta.

Cooperstown is home to some excellent lodging options, such as the Inn at Cooperstown, Tunnifliff Inn, Rose and Thistle B&B

Finger Lakes

I love the Finger Lakes! Hubby and I have spent a lot of time there during the last five years, and there is a lot to offer in the region.

The Finger Lakes communities offer restaurants with exquisite menus like the Aurora Inn (omg the food is soooo good!) There are some great little towns along the Finger Lakes, of course, Ithaca (home to Cornell University), as well as Greece (visit their downtown – it is fabulous!), and Canandaguia. You can stay at small resorts, wineries, or great B&Bs. Spread across the region, visitors to the area may enjoy traveling to different towns to take in attractions such as the Corning Museum of Glass. I cannot resist buying something in their gift shop everytime I go!

Since the Finger Lake area is known for its wine, create your own wine trail, with stops at any of the dozens of wineries open year-round. Pair your favorite drink with cheese or chocolates, and you have an impressive romantic outing.
While you are in the Finger Lakes, if you would like to do some winery exploration, I’ve been to more than a few:
* Estate Wineries on Seneca Lake
* Wine Tasting On Canandaigua Lake
* Wine Tasting On the West Side Of Seneca Lake
* Wine Tasting On the east Side of Seneca Lake
* Wine Tasting On Cayuga Lake

A little wine, a little fireplace in your room… it doesn’t get much more romantic than a weekend in the Finger Lakes (anytime of the year!)

Lake Placid

The site of two winter Olympics games, most recently in 1980, Lake Placid is a great spot for a romantic getaway involving snow and nature. Beyond being home to ski resorts, Lake Placid offers a look at some of the Olympics sporting venues, such as the Lake Placid Olympic Museum, as well as the ski jump and luge complexes.

For that perfect romantic weekend at Lake Placid, check out area spas, museums, and art galleries.

New York City

Where do you start for a romantic getaway in the Big Apple? I actually got engaged to Hubby at One if By Land, Two If By Sea. I expected a Valentine’s Day proposal (yes, I was a sure thing), but instead, he asked me the week before! Sneaky man.

There are nearly unlimited choices in NYC, so you can easily pick something out of column A and B and create a memorable visit.

A trip to New York requires a visit to Times Square possibly the busiest spot in the world. Stand next to people from hundreds of countries, as New York is the true melting pot of America. As you tour the area, visit Rockefeller Plaza for great views of the city!

Of course, no trip to New York is complete without a trip to the top of the Empire State Building. Who else loved Sleepeless in Seattle? It doesn’t get much more romantic than that!

With thousands of dining options available, a trip to Little Italy for an intimate dining table and a glass of wine is absolutely perfect.

Niagara Falls

While NYC may be among the most romantic cities, Niagara Falls may be the most naturally romantic spot in North America. With the falls separating New York and Canada, they offer a beautiful backdrop for a romantic getaway. It was the “Honeymoon Capital of the World” for most of the 20th Century; doesn’t get much more romantic than that!

Niagara Falls State Park is simply breathtaking. Enjoy the lightshow, the view from the Observation Tower, and walk the trails on Goat Island and Three Sisters Island. After a half-day spent walking the park, you can enjoy some of the Niagara County regional wines, including New York State Ice Wines! Yum!

Instant Pot Chicken Gumbo Recipe

This easy to make instant pot chicken gumbo recipe is a flavor explosion on your tongue! Hearty, rich, with a spicy flavor, this combination of chicken, sausage, and vegetables is a terrific lunch or dinner your whole family will enjoy!

Instant Pot Chicken Gumbo Recipe

Got an instant pot? Hubby loves ours and is always making various recipes. He leans on soups because he loves to eat them year-round.

This terrific instant pot chicken gumbo recipe takes a classic recipe and converts it to a simple-to-make dish in an instant pot! If you can use your instant pot (read the directions!) and chop vegetables, you can make this chicken gumbo.

white bowl with blue rim filled with chicken gumbo, cornbread in a pan with one piece removed, atop of weathered tabletop


There is nothing more comforting than a big bowl of instant pot chicken gumbo on a chilly night. The aromatic spices and bold flavors make the house smell so welcoming. This hearty meal is full of juicy chicken and sausage and is best when served over rice.

There are rumors that gumbo is a rendition of various French soups, more specifically the fish stew bouillabaisse. However, the invention of gumbo and its history is more strongly linked to slaves in the late 1700s who were gathered in the New Orleans area. Historical records indicate that it began when slaves would use cooked okra and mix it with rice to form a more hearty meal. Over the years, gumbo slowly got adjusted to the recipes commonly we see today.

This instant pot chicken gumbo is probably one of my favorite comfort foods. It makes chilly nights exciting rather than dreary and definitely keeps you warmed up. The main part about this recipe that I enjoy is how easy it is to make such a big batch. It works great as a main course to serve at fall get-togethers or around campfires. It’s easily adapted to fit taste preferences as well.

How Do You Make Instant Pot Chicken Gumbo?

You will want to have your Instant Pot set on the saute mode to begin your recipe. Add in the oil then follow it with the garlic which needs to saute for one minute, alone. Next, add in everything but the chicken, stock, juice, and tomatoes. Allow sauteing for about five minutes. Then, you’ll add the chicken, juice, stock, and tomatoes to the pot. Be sure to put the chicken in first then add the other ingredients on top. Set Instant Pot to the normal setting and allow to cook for 45 minutes and then naturally release. Shred the chicken, before browning up the sausage and adding it to the pot.

Tips For Making Instant Pot Chicken Gumbo Recipe:

• Read the directions on your instant pot.

• Follow the directions on your instant pot!

• You can add salt and pepper to suit your taste, but it may be better to do it after you have served up the chicken gumbo. Same thing for hot sauce!

• Be sure to add the sausage to the gumbo very last. It can quickly be sucked dry of its flavor if it sits in the mixture too long while it is cooking, browning it separately gives it the best flavor.

• Serve alone or over rice. You may want to serve some cornbread or rolls, too. Mmmmm fresh homemade yeast rolls.

Common Questions About Instant Pot Chicken Gumbo

What is Gumbo Chicken?

The word gumbo refers to a hearty stew, more commonly found in Louisiana. It is common throughout the United States, but the vegetables and meat included in the mix vary from state to state. For example, closer to the water in Louisiana will include items such as shrimp and crawfish in their gumbo. Further away from the water, people will usually include chicken. In most gumbos, it’s common to have okra, onion, celery, and tomatoes, along with a strong stock.

What is the Difference Between a Gumbo and Jambalaya?

The short answer is jambalaya is made with rice in the soup-stew, gumbo does not include it in the pot.

What Can I Put in My Gumbo?

One of the great things about gumbo is that you can pretty much put whatever you want in it when it comes to vegetables. The most common ingredients are celery, okra, onion, peppers, and tomatoes. However, if you have other preferences, feel free to toss them in and try them out. There are very few vegetables that would taste bad in a gumbo since the sauce penetrates each ingredient and brings it all together. You could try spinach, eggplant, kale, green beans, peas, etc. I wouldn’t suggest vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and similar.

Do You Put Tomatoes in Gumbo?

Most people, no matter the style of gumbo (creole or cajun) will include tomatoes. If okra is used as the thickening agent, you will almost always find tomatoes in the gumbo. However, if roux is used, tomatoes are not traditionally used. It all depends on the preference and area you are getting the gumbo or the recipe for the gumbo.

A good gumbo recipe is not hard to make but it sure does taste like a lot of effort was put into it.

Let It Snow Wreath

An excessively decorated white wreath (crystals, silver, rhinestones) with a let it snow sign, hanging from a bronze wreath hanger on a dark brown door.


This beautiful, blingy let it snow wreath is so easy to make! If you are looking for a fun and simple winter craft project to hang on your front door or over your fireplace mantel, you will want to make this sparkly winter wreath.

Let It Snow Wreath

The primary colors of this wreath are white and silver. We went with sparkly, over-the-top materials. This wreath could be made in a matte version if you want to tone down the glitz.

“Let It Snow” decorations are perfect for the winter months. I now decorate my foyer in “snow” themed decorations starting the first of December, and leave them up until March. It is nice and easy, fits the season, and I do not have to continually remove decorations. It also helps to look seasonally current as we go away for much of the winter. A Christmas wreath in February looks lazy and can signal “hey, these people are on vacation!.” A snow-themed wreath can be left up for a while.

If you are hanging this on a storm door, you may want to consider surrounding it with snowflakes. These wood burned snowflakes as well as a few sparkly snowflakes adhered with double-sided tape gives a nice winter touch.

I have “snowflakes” attached to the storm doors (on the inside) with double-sided tape. I know a lot of people prefer to hang snowflakes but the double-sided tape means they are not moving, and I like that. I have different sizes and different shapes to make it look like a “real” snowfall.

Since I have a large foyer I also have baskets of winter stems, signs, some tea lights and art.

Tips For Making This Let It Snow Wreath:

• The materials necessary to make this easy Wood Burned Snowflake can be purchased at at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby

• The rhinestone tape used in place of ribbon can be found in the bridal section of your local craft store.

• If you do not wish to use rhinestone tape, ribbon can be used instead.

• If you want a loop for a door hanger, use the rhinestone tape adjusted to the length you desire. If you used ribbon instead, use that ribbon to form your hanger.

• This is a fairly large wreath at 24″. You can adjust the size up or down, but if you do make sure you adjust your other materials to that size.

• This i a very easy to make wreath, while excessively glittery, it is not difficult or complicated to make.

• You can change the sign to “Snow” (these signs can be found at dollar stores, as well as at craft stores).

• This is a very icy, stark, wintery piece, so little color was used.
