The Finger Lakes region has so much to offer with Cayuga Lake being the largest of the lakes. The Greater Ithaca area has the distinction of being one of the most culturally interesting as well as centrally located spots from which to base all your activities. Restaurants include those famous for vegetarian cuisine, four-star gourmet dining, and an amazing variety of ethnic foods, family fare or lakeside dining. Live music can often be enjoyed at restaurants and cafes, as well as at many of the free summer concerts on The Commons, at local parks and pavilions.
Three State parks in the Greater Ithaca area offer outdoor activities such as hiking, swimming and kayaking, while offering appreciation for the natural beauty of the gorges, waterfalls and breathtaking sunsets.
If your interests are wineries, Cayuga Lake wineries are many and are well known; your B&B host keeps brochures available on many of the wineries. Two other wine trails are just a short drive away. Museums, theaters and other cultural events are also available.
The beauty of the area inspires artists and draws them to the region where their works can be seen in local galleries, museums, crafts stores, or for sale at one of the many annual festivals, or at the Ithaca Farmers Market.
