The Best Reasons to Book a Trip to the Finger Lakes from Toronto
COVID NOTE: As of the time of writing entry to the United States from Canada is limited to fully vaccinated travelers only. A negative COVID-19 PCR test will be required if you are flying in, and you may need to quarantine upon arrival.
Planning a Route from Toronto to the Finger Lakes
Looking to travel internationally? Why not take a trip across the border between the United States and Canada! About a 3 and a half-hour drive, you can change your scenery completely without spending all day in the car!
Want to leave the six, but don’t have a car? You can plot a bus route to Geneva-Waterloo, NY for less than $50 roundtrip! Flying to the Finger Lakes is not cost-effective or necessary as the nearest airport (Rochester Internatinal) is an hour drive away meaning you’d end up spending as much time flying over as you would driving.
Exciting New Things to Do
Toronto is a beautiful city with great sports teams, fun food, and Drake, but even the pride of Canada cannot compare to the natural beauty that is the Finger Lakes. Here are a few of our favorite activities for when people visit:
Go Kayaking – Kayaking in the Finger Lakes can often be a divisive topic for locals. Everyone has a “must-see” spot because of how beautiful and different all of the lakes are! Whether you are a paddleboarder looking for tranquil waters or a hardcore kayak fan looking to find something a bit more adventurous, you can find the right journey in Upstate New York.
Explore the Finger Lakes Wine Region – If you speak the language of vino then the Finger Lakes Wine region is ripe for you. The best wineries are found around Cayuga, Keuka, and Seneca Lake with robust wine trails available for the outdoor wine connoisseur.
Fish the Lakes – Looking to catch yellow perch, trout, bass, smelt, or crappie? We have all of those and more running in the Finger Lakes! Check our blog for the best times and seasons so that you come prepared to have a truly memorable fishing expedition!
