It’s that time of the year again—Valentine’s Day—and love is in the air. Whether you find yourself single or with that special someone this year, there are plenty of things for you to do to in the Finger Lakes to make it a memorable day. Valentine’s Day falls on a Wednesday this year, so that gives us all even more opportunities to take advantage of lots of fun things leading up to the big day. Here are 14 fun options for those celebrating Valentine’s Day, single or together.

The sandwich is a timeless classic with seemingly infinite arrangements. To craft the perfect sandwich is unto itself an art, so much so that those who craft them have been affectionately dubbed sandwich artists (just ask Subway)! In Ontario County’s Finger Lakes, we have sandwiches to rival our fiercest competitors, no matter how stacked the competition is. I love sandwiches, and our area has some of the best. Here are a few of my faves!  

Autumn is drawing to a close. Most of the leaves have fallen, along with the temperatures, though there are the stubborn few still clinging to their branches, unwilling to move on to winter. Here in Ontario County in the Finger Lakes, the first snow has come and gone. But before we move on to winter, there's still more to celebrate this fall.

It’s November! Believe it or not, that means Christmas is rapidly approaching, and so is the shopping season! And with Small Business Saturday – a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities – right around the corner, I thought I would share some of my favorite local gifts you can buy, right here in Ontario County. Most are available all year long, but if you want to take advantage of Small Business Saturday, head out on Saturday, November 25, for this year’s national day of small-town celebration!

Though well-known to locals, those visiting the Finger Lakes may be wondering what this slice of peculiar purple pie is, and it would be a shame to miss out on it! An essential part of every Thanksgiving dinner or celebratory family gathering, pies bring people together. Everyone has a favorite, but bring this pie to your next family event, and you'll have the most unique pie of all.
