Things to do With Kids

The Finger Lakes is a child's playground.

Best Kids Activities in the Finger Lakes

  • Sleep under the stars at Finger Lakes campgrounds ranging from primitive tent camping to RV camping to rental cabins and cottages. Don’t forget the smores, your hiking boots, or your swimsuit so you can take a dip in our lakes, Olympic-sized pools, or even under the waterfalls at Finger Lakes State Parks like Robert H. Treman and Buttermilk Falls in Ithaca.
  • Kids and grown ups will delight at the beautiful natural White Deer Herd found at Deer Haven Park and be amazed by the rich history of the previously top-secret former military installation that allowed the herd to flourish.
  • Make your own glass masterpiece at The Corning Museum of Glass, or experience art about America with creative hands-on activities at The Rockwell Museum in Corning, where kids 17 and under are free!
  • Enjoy our locally produced ice cream and gelato at small-town ice cream stands.
