Finger Lakes Travel Resources

Finger Lakes travel businesses

The Finger Lakes region of New York is home to 11 pristine lakes, countless waterfalls, over 100 wineries, historical mansions and museums, charming villages and boundless opportunities for fun and excitement. With activities for all four seasons, this beautiful area is a must-visit. Outdoor activities abound, with miles of trails for horseback riding, hiking, and biking, and you can add some flavor to your journey by traveling to one of the wine or cheese trails. The region is well-known for its award-winning wine, and most wineries offer tours, tastings, gift shops and other events for all tastes and budgets.

Enjoy delicious wine with local foods for the full Finger Lakes dining experience. Many restaurants in the area are members of Finger Lakes Culinary Bounty and Pride of New York, an organization that ensures your meal will be top quality. Coupled with inspiring views of the rolling hills, sparkling lakes, tall waterfalls and deep gorges, the Finger Lakes offers a can’t miss dining experience.

Take in the stunning natural beauty everywhere you go in the region. There are countless opportunities for recreation on the lakes and on the trails from boating and fishing to cross country skiing, snowmobiling and hunting. There are also extensive golf courses, including the homes of several major tournaments.

The history of the area is as alluringly pervasive as the natural beauty, with historic mansions open for tours throughout the region. In Rochester, you will find Susan B. Anthony’s home and in Seneca Falls the National Women’s Hall of Fame - places to celebrate women’s suffrage, women’s rights and the abolition of slavery. There are also many art galleries and museums to suit your fancy. Bring your kids to the Corning Museum of Art and make your own piece of art glass to bring home as a souvenir of time well spent in the Finger Lakes region of New York.
