Named the ‘most fun’ town of 2013's best small towns in America by Rand McNalley, Corning is the southern gateway into the beautiful Finger Lakes Wine Country and encompasses three rivers – the Tioga and Cocohton Rivers, which meet to form the Chemung – historically significant as these waterways were used by early settlers to send lumber downstream.


Also known as the “Crystal City,” this small city sparkles with its large population of fine arts, from local glass artists and painters to famous works featured in the galleries and museums like the renowned Corning Museum of Glass, which houses and displays the world’s best collection of art and historical glass.
 


 
Enjoy an historic and architectural walking tour through the tree lined streets of Corning’s famed downtown, the Gaffer District, and discover the charming specialty shops, restaurants and galleries along Historic Market Street. Plan your trip for one of the district's unique and exciting festivals like GlassFest where you can watch live glass blowing demonstrations or make your own glass memento!
 
 
Book a room at a quaint and historic B&B like the Rosewood Inn  or the chic Inn at the Gaffer Grille. While in town, take advantage of the free shuttle bus that runs daily between the Rockwell Museum of Western Art  and the Corning Museum of Glass, where you can actually blow your own piece of glass to treasure.
 
 
Round out your trip by taking to the trails of the more than 30 area wineries located on Seneca, Cayuga, and Keuka Lakes or step back in time at Heritage Village of the Southern Finger Lakes  where you can get a taste of early American life from the founding of America up until the end of the 19th century.
