Expand your Horizons in the Finger Lakes


Visit Wineries, Meet the Grand Canyon of the Eastand Go Biking, Kayaking & Camping


Named for the linear ‘finger-shaped’ lakes that were formed during the Ice Ages, the Finger Lakes Region  boasts a climate and topography that's reminiscent of the Tuscany Region in Italy - where picturesque towns, fresh-fare restaurants, and vineyards  dot the rolling hills and overlook deep blue lake shores.

A Visit to Vinyards along the Wine trails  is a great way to experience the local cuisines and enrich your vacation experience - and no trip to the Finger Lakes Region is complete without experiencing the fun of wine & brew tasting,  but there is Much more to See and Do in the Finger Lakes ..


Ballooning over Letchworth State ParkFor Summertime Adventure, try expanding your horizons on the western edges of the Region as you soar above Letchworth State Park in a colorful hot air balloon. With 600-foot cliffs and sparkling waterfalls, Letchworth's “Grand Canyon of the East”  was given the USA TODAY Readers’ Choice Award for one of the Best State Parks in the United States. Then travel further south, to find heart-pumping auto racing at Watkins Glen International speedway.

Enjoy Hiking and biking  along the pristine nature trails, go kayaking along the famous Erie Canal, and pursue your outdoor passion to the fullest with camping, RV'ing glamping.  

Sightseeing is a must in the charming Villages of Skaneateles, Ithaca, Geneva, and Corning, named the 'most fun' town in America by Rand McNalley, and you can add ambiance to the list by exploring the World-famous City of Rochester (right), a place where innovation and excitement meets culture and style.
