Things to Do
Finger Lakes Outdoor Activities
The outdoors are truly great in the Finger Lakes, every season of the year. Snow sports, biking, hiking, golf, and watersports are among the favorites of our visitors. That's why we call ourselves "Nature's Health Club." To experience tree-top adventures, Bristol Mountain Aerial Adventures and Canopy Zipline Tour takes you to new heights and new physical challenges.
Our snow days provide lots of winter fun. Ontario County's winter activities run the gamut from downhill and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, skating, and ice fishing. We even attract people "crazy enough" to ride their fat tire bikes on our trails.
Hiking and biking are big in Ontario County, with well-marked trails through pristine fields and forests and gazillion back roads with jaw-dropping views on every turn.
Ontario County loves fishing, even on ice. The Big One could be swimming in one of our five lakes or many streams.
We have parks and playgrounds in every community. Tennis, soccer, swimming, basketball, and frisbee golf are just a few of the ways to play in New York's Finger Lakes.
