Exploring the Finger Lakes – Our top things to see

Exploring the Finger Lakes – Our top things to see

Our trip in Finger Lakes, in the New York State, was an amazing an unexpected experience of an area that truly deserves more popularity!
Our list of top things to do starts from chilling out in the small towns around the different lakes, from Itaka on the Cayuga lake (home of the Cornell university), passing trough the European Geneva on the Seneca Lake, till arriving to the beautiful Canandaigua.
A must thing to do in the area is for sure to hike the various gorge trails and be able to visit all the hundreds of waterfalls, that is how we spent most of our time in FInger Lakes. Our favorite hike, and for sure the most scenic, is Watgins Glen State Park (also the most crowded). We also tried Robert H. Treeman , Buttermilk, Taughannock Falls and Grimes Glen state parks. These are all extremely beautiful, unfortunately when we were there some of the waterfalls had dried up due to the scarse rainfalls.
One more must thing to do is to spent some time visiting a local winery and have a wine tasting. Also here our favorite is Dr. Konstantin Frank’s winery, with a scenic views of Keuka Lake. The Riesling and other white wines are a must try.
A special mention also to the 2 Splendid Bed and Breakfast that welcome us in this challenging period with COVID-19: Sutherland House Victorian B & B and The William Henry Miller Inn.

    As a New Yorker, it saddens me that people only see NY as a little city when in reality, it’s a big beautiful state. Peace ✌.

    I grew up in Watkins Glen. Sure brought back many good memories. I have to admit I had tears in my eyes watching this. Looks like not much has really changed In the 60 yrs that i have left.

    I’m from the Hudson Valley, but have explored the Finger Lakes. This was very well done. Another appeal of the region is its quaint towns. Oh yeah, and Letchworth State Park!!! Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountains are extremely beautiful, well the whole state is, including Long Island!!!

    How many days do we need to visit

    I am a native of upstate NY. I just returned from a visit to the Finger Lakes region. Upstate NY is beautiful . The best kept secret since sliced bread. Adirondacks and Mirror Lake are something to be seen too. Glen Falls NY also has the “ It’s A Wonderful Life “ museum. The movie was based on a historical incident that happened there. It is located north of Seneca Lake. Butter Milk Falls is pretty too. Too many people think NYC is the whole state it is not. It would be like stating Galveston Island is the whole state of Texas.
