The Finger Lakes are known for producing excellent wine, particularly for world-renowned Rieslings. That being said, the Finger Lakes have so much more to offer. The region also boasts a number of breweries, distilleries and hard-cider producers.
The Finger Lakes are not just for the 21+ crowd; there are activities here for all ages. Museums are spread across the region, including the Glenn H. Curtiss Aviation Museum, displaying the history of Glenn Curtiss, who was awarded U.S. Pilots License #1 in 1911 and held the motorcycle speed record from 1907 through 1930.
If you are looking to get outdoors, the Finger Lakes are a must-see destination. From hiking and biking, to boating and fishing or even, there's something for everyone to enjoy. There are also a number of state parks with scenic beauty to behold including a number of waterfalls; visit Watkins Glen State Park to see the gorge trail complete with 19 waterfalls. Though most noted for its wine tours, the Finger Lakes Region is also host to a number of other tours including boat tours and food tours.
