The North Shore Lakefront Tour
The North Shore Lakefront Tour

Have a taste for travel? The Finger Lakes Region is a vast area beckoning the adventurous traveler to be explored and enjoyed!  With (11) Finger Lakes to choose from in upstate New York, it only seemed fitting to feature a distinctive old/new lakefront area tour of the 4th largest of those Finger Lakes: scenic and panoramic Canandaigua Lake.

Considered one of the most beautiful spots in the United States, the rolling hills, coupled with nature’s own majestic splendor, it’s been deemed the “Gem of the Finger Lakes.” This awe-worthy experience includes a delectable farm to table lunch, a tour of NY Kitchen, historical facts, and lakefront history all sprinkled into one leisurely, fun-filled afternoon!

Mennonite Horse & Carriage
NOT Your Typical Upstate NY Mennonite & Amish Tour

Many Amish & Mennonite families began purchasing farmland throughout the state of New York making the state one of the fastest-growing Amish and Mennonite populations in the country. The combined population between these (2) groups is approximately 25,000. Penn Yan, NY where, many of them have settled, lies at the north end of the east branch of Keuka Lake.

Our excursion begins just outside of the village of Penn Yan which originally was said to have been contrived from the first syllables of “Pennsylvania” and “Yankee”. These early settlers were from Pennsylvania and the New England area with the latter being known as Yankees.

Offered every Tuesday beginning in May and running through the end of October, this (4.5) hour tour is designed specifically to encourage each guest to participate fully. 

Get ready to…

♦ Journey back to an uncomplicated time
♦ Enjoy the region’s quintessential excursion
♦ Experience an uncommon physical challenge
♦ Absorb the countryside views of rural Yates County
♦ Listen to a descriptive narrative of America’s rail & transportation history

NOT Your Typical Upstate NY Mennonite & Amish Tour

Many Amish & Mennonite families began purchasing farmland throughout the state of New York making the state one of the fastest-growing Amish and Mennonite populations in the country. The combined population between these (2) groups is approximately 25,000. Penn Yan, NY where, many of them have settled, lies at the north end of the east branch of Keuka Lake.

Our excursion begins just outside of the village of Penn Yan which originally was said to have been contrived from the first syllables of “Pennsylvania” and “Yankee”. These early settlers were from Pennsylvania and the New England area with the latter being known as Yankees.

Offered every Tuesday beginning in May and running through the end of October, this (4.5) hour tour is designed specifically to encourage each guest to participate fully.

Mennonite Horse & Carriage
NOT Your Typical Upstate NY Mennonite & Amish Tour

Many Amish & Mennonite families began purchasing farmland throughout the state of New York making the state one of the fastest-growing Amish and Mennonite populations in the country.

Our excursion begins just outside of the village of Penn Yan which originally was said to have been contrived from the first syllables of “Pennsylvania” and “Yankee”. These early settlers were from Pennsylvania and the New England area with the latter being known as Yankees.

Offered every Tuesday beginning in May and running through the end of October, this (4.5) hour tour is designed specifically to encourage each guest to participate fully.

The North Shore Lakefront Tour

Have a taste for travel? The Finger Lakes Region is a vast area beckoning the adventurous traveler to be explored and enjoyed!  With (11) Finger Lakes to choose from in upstate New York, it only seemed fitting to feature a distinctive old/new lakefront area tour of the 4th largest of those Finger Lakes: scenic and panoramic Canandaigua Lake.

Considered one of the most beautiful spots in the United States, the rolling hills, coupled with nature’s own majestic splendor, it’s been deemed the “Gem of the Finger Lakes.” This awe-worthy experience includes a delectable farm to table lunch, a tour of NY Kitchen, historical facts, and lakefront history all sprinkled into one leisurely, fun-filled afternoon!

Mennonite Horse & Carriage
NOT Your Typical Upstate NY Mennonite & Amish Tour

Many Amish & Mennonite families began purchasing farmland throughout the state of New York making the state one of the fastest-growing Amish and Mennonite populations in the country. The combined population between these (2) groups is approximately 25,000. Penn Yan, NY where, many of them have settled, lies at the north end of the east branch of Keuka Lake.

Our excursion begins just outside of the village of Penn Yan which originally was said to have been contrived from the first syllables of “Pennsylvania” and “Yankee”. These early settlers were from Pennsylvania and the New England area with the latter being known as Yankees.

Offered every Tuesday beginning in May and running through the end of October, this (4.5) hour tour is designed specifically to encourage each guest to participate fully. 

Get ready to…

♦ Journey back to an uncomplicated time
♦ Enjoy the region’s quintessential excursion
♦ Experience an uncommon physical challenge
