Seneca Lake WineTrail
Seneca Lake is known for its diverse offering of world-class wines. Our member wineries pledge to exceed your expectations when you visit to taste wine and experience the Finger Lakes. You don’t have to travel to far-away places to experience fantastic wines. They are right here on Seneca Lake, within a 5-hour drive of most metropolitan areas in the northeast including New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, and many more.
The Windmill Farm and Craft Market
is one of our favorites! It’s the oldest of its kind in Upstate New York and runs from the last Saturday in April until the second Saturday in December. That means it’s also one of the longest-running markets in terms of its open season as well! The produce here is the highlight of the market, as well as the vendors selling prepared foods, souvenirs, and flowers.
Seneca Falls NY
In recent years Tourism has become the major industry in Seneca Falls. The Women's Rights National Historical Park including the site of the first Women's Rights Convention and the Elizabeth Cady Stanton House, the National Women's Hall of Fame, the Seneca Falls Historical Society, the Seneca Museum of Waterways and Industry and the Seneca Falls Heritage Area Visitors Center as well as local wineries, the Finger Lakes and beautiful scenery of the Central New York all attract visitors to the Village of Seneca Falls. The Village has recently received attention as the likely inspiration for the fictional village of Bedford Falls in Frank Capra's holiday classic movie "It's A Wonderful Life."
Watkins Glen State Park
Watkins Glen State Park is the most famous of the Finger Lakes State Parks, with a reputation for leaving visitors spellbound. Within two miles, the glen's stream descends 400 feet past 200-foot cliffs, generating 19 waterfalls along its course. The gorge path winds over and under waterfalls and through the spray of Cavern Cascade. Rim trails overlook the gorge. Campers and day-visitors can enjoy the Olympic-size pool, scheduled summer tours through the gorge, tent and trailer campsites, picnic facilities and excellent fishing in nearby Seneca Lake or Catherine Creek, which is renowned for its annual spring run of rainbow trout.
