The first thing we often hear from our city visitors is, “I can’t believe all the stars you can see!” It is true – the beauty in the Finger Lakes doesn’t set with the sun! 

Wherever you are visiting us from, here are a few spots that are sure to offer some brilliant stargazing landscapes. 

Which Finger Lakes Mural is Your Favorite?

Wednesday, June 17, 2020 9:00 AM by Christen Smith

Across the Finger Lakes, murals dot nearly every corner of our area. A mural is any piece of artwork painted or applied directly on a wall or other permanent surface. And there are plenty to marvel in Ontario County! These gorgeous works of art promote local talent and engage the community by turning empty city walls into huge public canvases.

Jump in your car and plan your next day trip by checking out each of our murals up close. How many can you find? 

Hiking the trails of Ontario County is fun to do in any season, but if you’re looking to add a new twist to your next adventure, consider Geocaching. Remember to adhere to social distancing guidelines when you head out!

Simply put, geocaching is a treasure hunt. It’s the activity of hunting for, and finding, a hidden object by using GPS (Global Positioning System) coordinates that are posted on the Geocaching website. The game is completely free, and you can download the Geocaching app to most smart phones, or you can purchase a hand-held GPS device to help you find hidden geocaches. Once you have the app or a GPS device, you can start finding hidden geocaches anywhere around the world!

There’s just something about a rooftop bar that makes the drinks taste better, the conversations livelier and the experience elevated (quite literally!). With the gorgeous panoramic views of the Finger Lakes region, we love seeing our number of rooftop bars continue to rise.

Please remember that social distancing guidelines are still in place. Keep yourselves and our community safe by following all rules and regulations!
