CANANDAIGUA --- Just in time for summer, Finger Lakes Visitors Connection has released “Jump In! The Official Visitors Guide for Ontario County.” The free 16-page booklet will inspire visitors and residents to engage in great activities and experience unique places throughout Ontario County.
“Jump In!” is organized around 16 full-day itineraries. Each itinerary includes activities, attractions and places to eat and stay. The itineraries are also linked to one of four popular themes requested by visitors: foodies, outdoor adventurists, cultural aficionados, and wellness seekers.
The “Jump In!” itineraries are easy to mix and match, and offer a variety of experiences throughout Ontario County, from Victor, Canandaigua, and Geneva to Naples, Clifton Springs, and around Honeoye Lake. For example, a cultural aficionado might start the day at Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion State Historic Site in Canandaigua and end it with a show at Bristol Valley Theater in Naples, while a foodie could spend the day in Geneva exploring wineries, taking a tour of Red Jacket Orchards, and dining at a farm-to-table restaurant.
“Often visitors call us and say, ‘I have an afternoon to spend in the Finger Lakes. What should I do?’ We redesigned this year’s guide to better reflect the format in which visitors ask for information,” says FLVC President Valerie Knoblauch.
Also included in the guide is a map of Ontario County with driving times from nearby metropolitan areas, a list of major summer and fall festivals and events, a directory of wineries, breweries and hard cideries, a detailed map of the region with a description of the Finger Lakes that are within Ontario County’s borders, and a list of free or nearly free events.
“Jump In!” will soon be available at visitor centers and other places where tourism literature is displayed across Ontario County and the region. It can also be ordered from the Finger Lakes Visitors Connection website, or by calling (585) 394-3915 or (877) 386-4669, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
A digital and interactive version can also be downloaded.
