Favorite Activities to do in the Finger Lakes:

Sitting by a firepit near the lake sipping wine from one of the many amazing wineries.

The charming communities and local shops and restaurants that feature local artists work and farm to table foods

Fall in the Finger Lakes is my favorite season with the farmstands and beautiful fall foliage, warm apple cider and pumpkin farms.
