Artists have always been drawn to the Finger Lakes because they found inspiration in its scenic beauty, including waterfalls, the rolling hills and four distinct seasons. Performing, musical, visual, and literary artists have long found something distinctly special here. View the magnificent works at main street art galleries like Finger Lakes Gallery and Frame along with specialty shops like Artizanns and Wizard of Clay.Professional theater can be found at the Bristol Valley Theater or at the Smith Opera House, which both feature live performances from national talent.
History comes alive at places like Ganondagan, the site of a thriving village nearly 400 years ago. Victorians left their legacy in places like Sonnenberg Gardens and Mansion and along the streets of the Finger Lakes through architecture and art. A stop at Granger Homestead will show you one of the largest antique carriage collections in the United States. Every summer, you can experience the rich history of the Mormon religion at the Hill Cumorah Pageant, a theatrical retelling of the beginnings of the Mormon religion, which occurred right in the Finger Lakes.
This is a year-round FAM trip and can be designed to meet your specific interests.
