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!
