Day 1: Arrive in the Finger Lakes

Welcome to the Finger Lakes! A region of New York State marked by high gorges, many with dramatic waterfalls is known for both its series of long, thin lakes, and its vineyards. Kick off your trip exploring Corning by wandering through the Gaffer District with its many boutiques and artist shops. Get cultural at the Corning Museum of Glass and be sure to visit the Contemporary Art and Design wing. For art lovers, be sure to visit the Rockwell Museum that houses a renowned collection of Western paintings.

Day 2: Seneca Lake

In the Seneca Lake area you'll find a concentration of most of the Finger Lake vineyards here, but save vino for later this afternoon. Begin the morning with some soft adventure at Watkins Glen State Park experiencing its numerous waterfalls. After, treat yourself to a wine tasting tour since the Seneca Lake Wine Trail is home to more than 30 wineries. If wine isn't your thing, enjoy a craft brewery tour and learn why this area is also perfect for unique beer making!

Day 3: Finger Lakes

Today, explore the beautiful Finger Lakes region however you want! Take your time strolling around Cornell University's beautiful campus grounds in nearby Ithaca, or take to the skies in a hot air balloon ride over the stunning landscape. Perhaps explore the city of Corning and take advantage of your included Corning Museum of Glass Admission!

Day 4: Farewell

Today you journey home. Finish up with last minute stops and enjoy the scenery along the way!
