It’s this time each year when some of us emerge from our homes like grizzlies from their dens. Shaking off the indoors and winter temperatures to step into longer days and welcomed sunlight. People rekindle forgotten New Year’s resolutions with passion and excitement. You see the overeager among us in shorts and T-shirts, while the crocuses are still dusted with frost. Whatever category you find yourself in, now’s the time to get outside and spring into action! What are you waiting for?

Occupying the top five spots on the list of largest lakes in the United States, there’s no doubt the Great Lakes make an impression. But lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario aren’t the only lakes that are great. New York’s Finger Lakes, while smaller in size, punch well above their weight in terms of scenery, attractions, activities, food and drink. And the deeper you dive, the more you discover!
We’ve rounded up just a few reasons the Finger Lakes deserve the “great” title, too.
