Things to do!

From wide-open spaces and changing seasons to boutique shopping and on the water activities, Ontario County offers the luxury of choice when it comes to things to do.

With 5 of the 11 Finger Lakes located in Ontario County jumping in, gliding along or just sitting lakeside and enjoying the views is a Finger Lakes must!  An amazing 2.8% of Ontario County is water! In addition, biking, hiking, golf, and skiing are favorite activities with every season offering something new.

Wineries, breweries, distilleries and cider houses, each with its own story to tell and specialty flourish throughout the region.  Wine tastings and tours set amid the picturesque backdrop of the Finger Lakes are a favorite way to relax and enjoy an afternoon.

Shopping and dining are second to none in Ontario County.  Choose from small town boutique shopping to one of the largest malls in the region and everything from farm-to-table dining to authentic international fare.

Enhance your experience with one of the many festivals and events that abound throughout the Finger Lakes year round.  From holiday shopping with a German twist at Granger Homestead’s Christkindl Market to the celebration of everything grape each September at the Naples Grape Festival, the list of fantastic festivals and events is seemingly endless!
