“A relaxing place to take the kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Cayuga lake is a thing of beauty. It has several parks and many vineyards. You can stop by the city of Ithaca and enjoy your time their as well. Definitly a great place to visit. I don't agree with the picture they display though it should be of the actual lake not the falls. hmmmmmmm

“beautiful lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

It's a beautiful place, very peaceful and great to distract yourself and chill for a bit. There's a Dragon Boat race going on every July, it's very festive and entertaining. This place is so big, great for hiking, walking your dog or even sail a boat!
