Finger Lakes

New York’s land of lakes!

The warmer seasons are simply water-full in the Finger Lakes. Pick any of the 11 lakes across the region to swim, jet-ski, wakeboard, boat and kayak, or simply to bask next to.

Surrounding the lakes are gorgeous Watkins Glen, Chimney Bluffs, and Letchworth State Park, - known as the Grand Canyon of the East. Small towns sprinkled across the region make for great day-trip destinations as well. Follow a wine trail, explore the shops, sample tasty foods and enjoy the season. Each August the New York State Fair calls Syracuse home for 12 days of fun, rides and entertainment for the whole family!
