From wineries to sandy beaches, the Finger Lakes region offers plenty of scenic enjoyment for your next romantic getaway. Long, narrow, and kind of parallel, the 11 lakes that spread out between Syracuse, Rochester, and Corning resemble fingers. At least, that is what early map makers thought when they sketched out the topography of the area in the 17th century. Today, the so-called Finger Lakes are frequented by visitors in every season to enjoy the region’s natural beauty and abundance of recreational activities. Not only does the lakeshore scenery make a wonderful backdrop for wine-tasting and driving, but the area provides plenty of opportunity for hiking, boating, and water-skiing. We suggest an overnight stay in accommodations by one of the lakes to fully enjoy the region’s natural beauty. Toast to your love around the fire of a luxury tent or in the hot tub of a historic cabin near New York’s Finger Lakes.
