Activity Overview

More than 100 vineyards and storybook towns are tucked between these 11 pristine lakes that spread like fingers across the central New York countryside. Each of the Finger Lakes takes on a different personality. Some are outdoorsy types, others are playful with fun educational experiences, and yet others are food fanatics boasting upscale dining and wine experiences.
