A Year Round Destination
Each of our four seasons has its own look, feel and flavor, so it's never the wrong time to visit.
Summers offer sailing, hiking and outdoor dining as well as festivals and outdoor concerts with a backdrop of pristine lakes, brilliant sunsets and rolling landscapes.
Winters offer skiing, snowboarding, hiking and community festivals with puffy snowflakes and rosy cheeks.
Spring means Maple and Crocus and the smell of renewal.
Autumn is all about pumpkins and bonfires and hot mulled cider.
Whenever you visit, no matter how long you stay, we're confident you'll fall in love with Canandaigua and the Finger Lakes.
Canandaigua Lake is one of the most prized lakes in New York State, and we think you'll understand why when you dine at a restaurant on Lakeshore Drive or walk the pier or stroll through Kershaw Park.
Regardless of the weather, the lake speaks to us. It majesty is enduring and inspires a breezy day on a boat or an autumn afternoon in the car - driving to Naples, perhaps, for a glass of wine, a meal or a snack.
The Finger Lakes, as a whole, offer endless opportunities for exploration and memory-making. Grab your GPS and make a day of visiting communities like Hammondsport, Watkins Glen, Ithaca, Seneca Falls and Geneva. Then come back and tell us all about your adventures!
