Whenever you visit, no matter how long you stay, we're confident you'll fall in love with Canandaigua Lake, Ontario County and the Finger Lakes.

Canandaigua Lake is one of the most prized lakes in New York State, and we think you'll understand why when you dine at a restaurant on Lakeshore Drive or walk the pier or stroll through Kershaw Park.

Day hikers will enjoy the trail network (and the charming downtown) in Victor. Autumn afternoons are made for a drive to Naples, perhaps, for a glass of wine, a meal or a snack. And communities to the south and east offer a rich compliment of heritage architecture, niche retail and award winning food and beverage.

The Finger Lakes Region, as a whole, offers endless opportunities for exploration and memory-making. Grab your GPS and make a day of getting lost and found. Then come back and tell us all about your adventures!

Just when you think you've seen it all, we encourage you to explore #WinterInCanandaigua.  Our region looks great in white!
