Kendall Knaak is a born and raised Upstate New York girl, and loves having the chance to share and celebrate the Finger Lakes area in her capacity in visitors services and marketing. Kendall is a 2017 graduate of Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, with a degree in public relations. While in college, she lived in London for 5 months, and now is constantly planning her next adventure. When she is not spreading the good word of the Finger Lakes, she can be found reading, spending time with her family and friends or, most likely, rewatching The Office.

For us in Ontario County, March is about all things maple (I think there might also be a basketball tournament as well? I will check on that). Maple Weekends in March are a great time to spotlight the sugarmakers that keep our pancakes coated with syrup year-round, and the process of turning the sap into syrup. 

With the temperatures starting to drop a bit in Ontario County, it’s time to pull out the crockpot and the comfort food recipes that make the winter months so cozy. But if you’re on vacation (Or don’t want to cook!) the question becomes “Which of the many amazing Ontario County restaurants should I go to for a hot meal?”

Don’t worry—Finger Lakes Visitors Connection has you covered with our favorite spots for a great wintertime meal!
