Lake Ontario bridges the divide between New York and Canada, with its shoreline left undeveloped to the south and bustling to the north. In New York, visitors can enjoy relative solitude in the verdant hills or on the lakeshore. In summer, the region’s peak season, New York’s shoreline gives outdoor enthusiasts the chance to enjoy broad networks of hiking and biking trails all to themselves. Boat traffic also remains relatively low in the tranquil waters of Lake Erie, leaving more space for a canoe trip to the islands that dot the Lake’s placid surface. To balance the trip out, visit Rochester to enjoy the city’s exceptional architecture and city parks. With plenty to do in the lush area, we recommend an overnight stay among the region’s natural beauty. Book a luxury yurt or secluded cabin along the shores of Lake Ontario for a memorable summer getaway.
