Due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, the Spring Wine & Cheese Event listed below is subject to change. Please visit the event’s website for the latest information. Thank you for understanding!
1. Spring Wine & Cheese Weekend
The Finger Lakes is the largest wine region in New York State. So, it’s no surprise that this area is home to more than 100 wineries and some amazing wine-centric events! Be sure to attend the Spring Wine & Cheese Event hosted by the Seneca Lake Wine Trail when you visit in April. This annual event celebrates the art of wine and food pairings, and each attendee will receive a variety of samples of wine and cheese-themed dishes.
2. Waterfall Hikes at State Parks
The Finger Lakes region is known for its natural beauty. Lounging by the lakeside isn’t the only way to soak up the magical views this area has to offer. Waterfall hikes are one of the most popular spring activities in the Finger Lakes region! Spring is the best time to view these waterfalls, as the winter’s remaining snow melts, creating more water to cascade down the rock faces.
Watkins Glen State Park is the best place to go for a waterfall hike. This New York state park is home to 19 waterfalls, which are accessible via the parks’ beautiful stone staircases, bridges, and tunnels.
