We never expected to have as much fun as we did. We even stayed an extra day. We started off for the 3rd Friday walk and ended up having some amazing food and great entertainment at Tioga Trails Cafe. What a lovely village Owego is, and Hickories is a great jumping off point to the Finger Lakes, Tioga Downs, and Owego itself. Not to mention Endicott, about 10 minutes away and Binghamton about 22 minutes away. We kayaked at any hour we wanted to and enjoyed the scenery with the river and the big green hills in the background. The only draw back: the sound of traffic on Rt. 17/86. I chose to turn up the music at times, especially when the wind was sending the sound my way too much.
