So much to experience!

Unique shopping and great restaurants. Corning Glass Museum is a must see. Blow your own glass ornament and watch the professional gaffers create beautiful glass items.

I don't know when the busy, prime time is, but when we were there (Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon), it was quite quiet.
