Women’s Entrepreneurship Day

November 19th is Women’s Entrepreneurship Day, and we are here to celebrate these powerhouse females who have brought their talents to the Finger Lakes! Historical figures who called our region home, like Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Blackwell, have set the table for our present and future women changemakers, and below are just a couple who have pushed the envelope and created operations making waves in their different industries.

During this time of social distancing and shift to finding new outdoor adventures, I see some gorgeous Finger Lakes photography happening on Instagram! From fall foliage-lined trails to breathtaking vistas, it is such a remarkable experience watching visitors see our backyard in their own individual ways.

Peak color is here in the Finger Lakes! Green has yielded to golds, reds, oranges, and purples that can be enjoyed over the next week. This is the perfect time to be down by the water, hiking through the Bristol hills, or driving the winding roads of the Finger Lakes along Routes 5&20!
