Before you look ahead and plan your next vacation to the Finger Lakes, we must look back. COVID-19 changed us all, behaviors big and small seemed to shift – and that certainly applied to how Americans traveled in 2020!
33%. The percentage of paid time off left on the table last year by American workers. 6.8. The number of days off used for travel, compared to 11.6 in 2019. 63%. The percentage of people who feel they desperately need a vacation.
If you follow us on Instagram, we know you’ll agree with us that there is just something magical about a Finger Lakes winter. From the snow-covered trees and hills to the breathtaking vistas around our lakes, winter sports enthusiasts and cottage core fans alike will find their place in our region.

Leave the cooking to the experts this holiday season with a delicious Finger Lakes Christmas dinner to go (and some bonus in-person seatings, too!)! We are all celebrating a little bit differently this year, and most of us are celebrating with a much smaller number of close ones around our dining room tables. What you can control this year is serving your household a delicious meal from your favorite Finger Lakes restaurant or use this chance to try some place new!
With a full slate of holiday experiences for those near and far, spend your holidays with us in the Finger Lakes – you might just feel like the star of your own Hallmark Christmas movie! From light shows to hands-on cooking classes, and of course, one on ones with this season’s VIP, there is fun all month long for all ages.
