Take scenic drives exploring the family-owned vineyards and wineries filling up on delectable and wholesome food. Wander through small towns and beautiful country roads throughout the county. We take the saying ‘Take the scenic route’ pretty seriously here in the Finger Lakes, there isn’t any other choice! The winding roads through charming small towns and villages are the perfect escape for recharging or reconnecting. 

Take the village of Aurora; It’s a village that defines the word quaint. Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the main drag for shops like the Village Market with convenience items and locally made products and eateries like the 1833 Kitchen.  And no drive through Aurora is complete without a stop at MacKenzie-Childs Outlet. Browse their collections of ceramics, furniture, and gifts. 

Take a drive up north and visit the village of Fair Haven. The Community Arts Center, the artist co-op stores on Main Street provide not only access to the arts but an outlet for anyone working on nearly any medium. The town and landscape are another bonus if you’re an outdoor person! From the Sterling Nature Center to Fair Haven Beach State Park and the very walkable village sidewalks, and you can’t call your visit complete without a tasting at Colloca Estate Winery situated on the shores of Lake Ontario. 

You can’t forget the craft beverage scene in Cayuga either. Breweries range from very small nano-breweries to cutting-edge microbreweries and our craft beer scene is second to none with each brewery offering their own special styles and flavors.

There are places where you can mingle and meet the locals, get to know the people growing your food and supporting the local economy and the hard-working individuals and families that make their living by cultivating the foods we enjoy.
