Our Tourism office promotes the activities, attractions, eateries, lodgings, points of interest (POIs) and other tourism-related assets of Cattaraugus County, the Enchanted Mountains of Western New York State. Our services are free to visitors and tourism-related organizations and businesses.
Why promote Cattaraugus County as the Enchanted Mountains?
The name originated in this region of New York many decades ago (possibly by "Yum" Anderson of Olean, NY). If you grew up in the country here, then you'll know of the beautiful views that we may take for granted at times. We know that we don't have the mountains of the Adirondacks or the Rocky Mountains, but we have rolling foot hills of the Appalachian Mountains.
Using the Enchanted Mountains name
We love it when people use the name "Enchanted Mountains". People say we're in the Enchanted Mountains. For your use online, here are some logos and badges for the EM. See Referencing the Enchanted Mountains.
We are the Tourism Promotion Agency(TPA) or Destination Marketing Organization (DMO) for Cattaraugus County.
We will list qualifying organizations and points of interest on:
