We plan to visit the Finger Lakes for three days in late September.
We are a retired couple from Belgium and during our stay we would like to limit to a minimum the time spent in our car and be out and about as much as possible.
Does the itinerary below include all the “must do’s”?
Are we trying to do too much on the Thursday?
We imagine that Ithaca would be the best place to choose as our base, but if there are other options, please let us know! If we choose an hotel outside of Ithaca, would parking in the downtown be expensive and or difficult?
Are there any dedicated cycle paths in the area?
WEDNESDAY 25 September: Corning Glass Museum; arrive Finger Lakes
THURSDAY 26: Explore on foot downtown Ithaca, Botanical gardens, Marine park and either Robert Treman Park or Buttermilk Falls
FRIDAY 27: Explore the west bank of Cayuga Lake, visit a few wineries and “do” Taughannock Falls
SATURDAY 28: Farmers Market in the morning, Skaneateles in the afternoon
Sunday 29: departure
Thanks in advance for taking time on this holiday weekend to reply!
