Things to Do
Corning and Southern Tier
Want a great Finger Lakes combo? Consider a trip from Canandaigua to Corning - especially popular with groups to our area. Art, wine and history are common themes for touring between Ontario County and Steuben County and New York's Southern Tier. Visit the Corning Museum of Glass, the Rockwell Museum, the Glenn H. Curtis Museum in Hammondsport. And of course there is the wine combo too. You can connect easily from the Keuka Lake Wine to Canandaigua or Seneca Lake Wine Trail.
Corning Museum of Glass offers the chance to see gaffers shape glowing hot globs of glass into something remarkable or 35 centuries of glass artifacts of different cultures or become an artist yourself and making your own one-of-kind work of art.
Everything western is right before your eyes at the Rockwell Museum, from Artemus the Buffalo crashing out the side of the building to the old jail cell inside, from the Remington and Russell Lodge where you can sit back and relax among the artwork to the enormous paintings and contemporary sculptures on the third floor. There are backpacks full of interactive fun for kids and even a room where they can dress up and play. It's the perfect place for the whole family to have an afternoon of fun.
Motorcycles, cars, and planes, Oh My! The Glenn H Curtiss Museum, located in Hammondsport is the sort of place people visit without always knowing what to expect and leave excited about their discovery. In addition to learning about the "fastest man on earth" who also happened to be a brilliant inventor and a daredevil of sorts, you'll find vintage motorcycles, cars and planes.
