Visiting the Finger Lakes is always a treat, especially when the fall colours are out. The scenery is lovely, Watkins Glen is interesting and beautiful and it's fun to visit wineries. The restaurants in the area have improved in the past few years and we enjoyed several excellent meals throughout the area. There is something for everyone here - wineries,... More

We visited for a September wedding and although it was cool, the leaves were just beginning to change and the rain and fog over Seneca Lake were gorgeous. A great escape from the heat of the summer and loved the wineries and breweries nearby. A fun area for sure!

We visited the finger lakes region of New York for 4 days. Initially, I thought this might be a bit too much time, but found I was wrong. There is definitely a lot to do. Besides being beautiful countryside, there are antique shops, wineries, distilleries, breweries & cheese shops. We wanted to primarily visit the wineries. We quickly discovered that... More

It's a beautiful region in upstate NY. Very peaceful and quiet with a lot of things to do. For example go to the Watkins Glen State Park or stop at one of the many vineyards.

My hubby & I went to the Finger Lakes for Memorial Day w/e. It was beautiful, we enjoyed ourselves immensely wine tasting and relaxing on the decks enjoying a beer. The food was also very good in Watkins Glen. Good values!

Just to get here you travel through beautiful towns and countryside. Suddenly the horizon drops away and you are looking at clear, blue water nestled in a glacial valley. Ahead are any number of wineries, restaurants and visual delights. This is the Finger Lakes of upstate New York. It is a unique area for wine making in that many "micro-climates"... More
