For most people, spending time in the Finger Lakes is all about the wine – which makes perfect sense – since some of these wineries produce world-renowned wines with the amazing variety of grapes that grow in this region. Sampling some of the fine wines here is a must for sure. However, as equally a must in my book is... More

We call the Finger Lakes "Home", so we have hiked and geocached many of the lakes. Breathtaking views, great swimming, great hiking trails, biking. Award winning Wine cellars, Wegmans Food Market, etc. We love it here!

It has always been amazing to me how many people, even who live in New York State, are unaware of the Finger Lakes. If you are anywhere near mid-state New York, take the time to explore the Finger Lakes. All of the lakes are gorgeous and the surrounding area offers lots of wineries, restaurants, waterfalls, and panoramic views. Whether for... More

We visited the Finger Lakes Region for the first time in August of 2015. There is something for everybody here. Yes, there are the wineries, but there are also Microbreweries and even a Distillery. Natural Beauty abounds in the hiking trails, gorges and lake views. Dining options for everyone from Fried Chicken to Find Dining. Pick any of the lakes... More

The word is "Chosen Spot" in the local Indian dialect and it is. The town is quaint and filled with restaurants and antiques and the lake itself is perfect. You can take a ride on the Canandaigua Lady, paddle boat, or use your own; it is fantastic. LOVE it here. Rent a cottage for a week and enjoy!

The Finger Lakes is rich in history and historical landmarks. It offers an interesting geographical landscape from the gorges and waterfalls of Ithaca, Watkins Glen, and Moravia to the sweeping farm fields and vast grape vineyards that surround many of the larger Finger Lakes. The region is home to many talented artisans in several fields across the entire region whether... More

Had some days to enjoy the Finger Lakes. We concentrated on the Seneka wine trail. So many wineries, take your time and don't rush to try too many wineries, after 4, it all just tastes the same. We do 2 in the morning then have lunch, sit and take in the scenery then do 2 in the afternoon. This is... More
