24 Must Do Activities in the Finger Lakes
The Finger Lakes is an area in northwestern New York filled with beauty and many things to do during any season. But there are especially appealing must-do activities in the Finger Lakes during spring, summer, and fall.
The leading lakes you’ll hear discussed repeatedly are Seneca, Keuka, and Cayuga, and the popular towns include Corning, Watkins Glen, Elmira, Seneca Falls, Ithaca, and Hammondsport.
1. Visit the Corning Museum of Glass
One of the best museums we’ve ever been to is in Corning, New York. The subject: Glass, including information and pieces to show how it has changed over thousands of years and how techniques and technology have changed over time.
Sign up for a flight aboard a small seaplane, which seats about four to five people. Take a journey above Keuka Lake, then land on it! The aerial views will be unique, and the entire experience will last about an hour.
2. Go on a Seaplane Adventure
3. Stay at a Historic Hotel
The Park Inn has been around since the 1830s. It’s in the center of Hammondsport and is a very charming and a great place to stay. Book one of the Inn’s suites quickly because there are only a handful!
4. Picnic in the Park Inn, Hammondsport Square This square patch of land with fluffy green grass displays beautiful Cherry Blossoms in the spring. Its central gazebo is great for taking photos. 5. Go Fall Leaf Peeping The Finger Lakes is a gorgeous area for fall Leaf Peeping, as it’s called. Its cities are blanketed in attractive colors as the leaves change from green to oranges, reds, and yellows during autumn.
