However you make your way to Geneva, N.Y., Seneca Lake and its stunning natural beauty will quickly welcome you upon arrival. This, the largest of the Finger Lakes, is visible along highways and hillsides from all directions leading here, as well as from much of downtown. Geneva is the heart of the Finger Lakes.Once here, you’ll find Geneva feels much like a small town where whatever you need is close at hand and everyone passes with a smile. It is, however, a vibrant and evolving city with diverse foods, languages, cultures, arts, shopping, educational opportunities and businesses. Our downtown offers something for everyone, including: a wide and growing selection of restaurants; a variety of shops and businesses; celebrations of film, theatre, music and dance; a large playground by the lake and an indoor play center. This is what we call, “Uniquely Urban.” Experience it for yourself; there’s no other city quite like Geneva.
Waterloo, NY, is situated in the heart of the Finger Lakes and is a community with rich history. Waterloo is located between the northern-most tips of Seneca and Cayuga Lakes, which makes this location ideal for the wine, lake or recreation enthusiast. Waterloo has the unique claim of being the only location recognized by the President of the United States as the Official Birthplace of Memorial Day. Waterloo is home of the Waterloo Premium Outlets Shopping Mall, with over 100 outlet stores from the world's leading designers & brand names.Another great feature of Waterloo is the Cayuga-Seneca Canal. Connecting the Erie Canal with upstate New York’s Finger Lakes Region, the Cayuga-Seneca Canal is 12 miles long and combines the unique experience of inland water and deep-lake cruising. Whether by boat, or by car, the Cayuga-Seneca Canal provides the perfect link into New York’s premier wine region. Enjoy a picnic by the water, launch your boat or gather brochures at the information center as you begin your journey.
The Native American translation of Canandaigua is “The Chosen Spot,” and that holds true today as it is a unique place to visit and enjoy. The downtown area is bustling, full of locally-owned shops, art galleries, restaurants and bed and breakfasts. In addition to its namesake lake – Canandaigua Lake, other highlights include Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion State Historic Park and Granger Homestead and Carriage Museum. Lakeshore Drive runs along the north shore of Canandaigua Lake. It features a swimming beach at Kershaw Park, picnic facilities, a city pier with boathouses, boat tours on the Canandaigua Lady at Steamboat Landing, and watersports rentals at Canandaigua Sailboarding.The Inn On The Lake and the New York Wine & Culinary Center are also along Lakeshore. The Culinary Center is a facility designed to educate people about the agricultural and culinary assets of New York through a tasting room, gift shop, restaurant, demonstration theater and hands-on kitchen. Additionally, during the summer, a variety of festivals from the Canandaigua Arts and Music Festival to the Riesling Festival show off Canandaigua’s culinary and artistic communities throughout the year. The Canandaigua Wine Trail is also a popular attraction for visitors. It is one of the smaller trails, just 41 miles, but is full of wineries, a brewery, as well as bed and breakfasts, golf, shopping and restaurants.
