Parks in New York are receiving more bookings this summer


New York’s tourism industry is bouncing back after an extremely dry summer in 2009.


“I think people have a pent-up, inherent desire to travel and claim their vacations back,” president of the New York State Hospitality and Tourism Association, Jan Marie Chesterton, said.


New York schools get out this week across the state and as hotel and motel reservations and campground bookings are increasing, industry officials have hopes of an economic rebound as the official start of summer begins.


Regardless of a state budget stalemate that threatened to shut down many state-run parks, historic sites and campgrounds, those low priced, close-to-home attractions are gaining popularity this year.
