The Central New York Welcome Center is located inside Destiny USA, America's sixth largest shopping center, in Syracuse.

It features a Taste NY Market with locally-made food and gifts like artisanal jams, gourmet hot chocolate mix, flavored culinary salts, truffles, maple fudge, hand-crafted candles, all natural soaps, and cutting boards made from New York State wood. The shop will also sell I LOVE NEW YORK shirts, magnets and travel mugs.

The Welcome Center pays tribute to the great outdoors. It features a camper retrofit with a large LED screen that promotes regional tourism attractions and destinations. Multiple interactive I LOVE NEW YORK kiosks are positioned in kayaks, allowing visitors to test their knowledge of the region or design a trip itinerary.

A Department of Motor Vehicles self-service kiosk will allow users to renew their vehicle registrations and conduct other DMV transactions.

The Welcome Center is operated by Visit Syracuse.
