Finger Lakes are a chain of lakes in New York that draws all kinds of visitors. The long, thin lakes are also some of the deepest in the country, with Cayuga and Seneca Lake dropping deep below sea level. Finger Lakes is known for “wine and water,” as you can stare at beautiful lakes while sipping on the local wine produce. Enjoy the natural land in New York as it sweeps you away with its beauty and history.
There are eleven lakes that make up this district, from Otisco to Skaneateles, Owasco, Cayuga, Seneca, Keuka, Canandaigua, Honeoye, Canadice, Hemlock and Conesus. Although the lakes are the main event, and you can spend your days by the serene water, there’s lots to do nearby. Visit Seneca Falls — the birthplace of women’s suffrage movement. In Seneca, see the Women’s Rights National Historic Park as well as the hall of fame. You can also see the home of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and the Wesleyan Chapel. Finger Lakes is also known as being one of the best wine producing regions in the state. There are hundreds of vineyards around the lakes, and open to visitors. Follow the Cayuga or Seneca Wine trails that circle the lakes — and more importantly the wine.
Rochester is nearby Finger Lakes, just an hour away for nightlife and city activities. After spending a day at the lake, head into Rochester for restaurants and a night away. The “First Friday” of the month, you can walk around open house galleries and studios. Rochester also has a lot of jazz nights for you to discover. Ithaca is less than an hour away from Finger Lakes, and is a quiet college town — home to Cornell University. Explore the gorgeous grounds of the University, or explore the surrounding restaurants and shops with a student vibe.
Finger Lakes has hundreds of rentals for you to choose, from lake-side dream houses to hotels with beautiful views. Tripping has a variety of accommodations for you to browse through, as the lakes span a lot of different land. Stay closer to the small towns, or spend your days right on the water and in the wilderness.
Fly into the Greater Rochester International Airport or Syracuse Hancock International Airport. Both Syracuse and Rochester have Amtrak stations also, so you could get close to Finger Lakes by train. There are major highways nearby to the lakes that make driving a solid option. Then, you can take the car to different spots on the water during your trip. On the lakes, boating is of course a fabulous way to cruise along the water!
