Picture this: You wake up to the sounds of birds and the soft movement of the water. You wake up when you want to, and there’s a full day of fun planned from hiking to wine tastings, or maybe you have no plans at all. It’s the luxury of choice!
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!
One of the top reasons to visit the Finger Lakes is to experience the natural beauty and breathtaking vistas (after the wine, of course!). With rolling hillsides, wide open spaces and breathtaking views, cycling through the Finger Lakes is an optimal way to explore the region.

Grab your telescope, blanket and bug spray because it’s time get ready for the total solar eclipse coming to a sky near you April 8 … 2024?! That’s right! We’re aware that’s about a lightyear away, but we already can’t wait.
And we’re not the only ones. There’s already been some media hype orbiting around 2024’s total eclipse. Amazingly, 2017’s eclipse was viewed by more than 150 million people! And 2024’s eclipse will last even longer than usual, taking the moon four minutes to move in front of the sun.
The best part—New York is one of 15 states in the U.S. located in the path of totality and the Upstate NY region is considered a prime viewing location!
So even though you have time to prepare, why not use the impending total eclipse as an excuse to scope out your perfect skygazing spot in the Finger Lakes? There’s no better (or more beautiful) place to navigate your way through stellar parks, celestial lakeside views and starry overlooks before the big day. To help, here’s a list of spots that shine bright in our eyes.
