Stewart's IS Upstate NY

Stewart's and Upstate New York go hand-in-hand and we love that you can find one pretty much anywhere you travel in the Capital Region!

What weekend road trip with the family would be complete without a stop at Stewart's to fill up on gas, grab something cold to drink, or better yet, a decadent ice cream cone or a delicious milkshake?

I love Stewart's ice cream - but so does most of New York! Did you know that Stewart’s Shops won Best Milk, Best Flavored Milk, Best Chocolate Ice Cream, AND Best Open Class Ice Cream in New York State at this year’s State Fair?

Stewart's Gets Ready for Spring Reveal

Stewart's announced on their social media recently that each week in March, they'll be rolling out tasty new "seasonal flavors" to add to their already-impressive list of dessert deliciousness.

"We’re thrilled to announce that our seasonal flavors are finalized, official, and oh-so-amazing! There will be 5 new flavors and one returning fan favorite from last year. These flavors will make their way to the ice cream counter one at a time, each week starting in March." Stewart's Shops


According to Stew's, their "flavor creators" have already decided on the 5 new additions, and one returning flavor, but it's a mystery as to which ones they'll be scooping starting in March.

They did, however, show pictures of the ice cream, and they all look pretty darn good if you ask me. If you follow them on social media, they'll be announcing each flavor as they roll out!

27 Images of Upstate New York's Most Magnificent Landmarks

I've lived here my entire life, and I'm not sure I realized just how beautiful the Empire State truly is. There's no shortage of stunning landscapes and breathtaking views throughout the great State of New York.

It doesn't matter where you live, or where you travel, New York residents are never far from a gorgeous beach, a picturesque state park, or an awe-inspiring mountain.

In 2018, a photographer named Demetri Andritsakis made a 3-and-a-half-minute drone video highlighting many of New York's breathtaking views called "Upstate New York By Air".

Andritsakis submitted it to the 2018 New York State Fair Drone Film Festival, and deservedly so, he received a Gold Medal honor for his aerial work throughout upstate New York.

From the Adirondacks to the Catskills, Albany to Buffalo, and everything worth seeing in between, check out these spectacular pics featuring 27 of the Most Magnificent Landmarks in Upstate New York.
