The Finger Lakes are a region of New York state. This is the east coast answer to Napa Valley region of California.


Get in

Fly, take a bus or train into Syracuse or Ithaca and explore. The Finger Lakes region is only a few hours from New York City by car or bus, only an hour by plane.

Get around

Most travel in this area will be by car. Unless you are traveling on an organized trip and transportation is already arranged, you will want to drive or rent a car.


Stop in and see the National Women's Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls.

Cornell University is in Ithaca.

Also, check out the Rochester Folk Art Guild, a local community of craftspeople who have been creating fine art for over 35 years.


This landscape can best be seen by traveling to one of the many Bed and Breakfast locations in the area.


Fantastic wine can be had from wineries on Finger Lakes Wine Tours. The Cayuga Wine Trail has a flavorful and educational tour every spring featuring herbs and food at each wine tasting stop.

  • Bully Hill Wineries provides a most entertaining wine tour and tasting.

Stay safe

If traveling in this area during the winter months, be aware that heavy snowfalls are possible. Lake effect snow has been known to drop four feet of snow in a weekend, or more. It is not unusual during heavy storms for it to come down at a rate of one inch per hour.
