Visit Wineries, See 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 the Vineyards and Wineries  is a great way to experience the local brews & cuisines that will enrich your vacation experience - but no trip to the Finger Lakes Region is complete without experiencing the fun of 'Wine Tasting' on the Wine Trails  that connect various establishments and towns.


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

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.
