WHY the Finger Lakes?

The Finger Lakes are a must-see destination! The Finger Lakes are a group of 11 long, narrow, lakes roughly running North to South in an area informally called the Finger Lakes region in New York, From hiking and biking to boating and fishing, there's something for everyone to enjoy. There are also a number of state parks with scenic beauty to behold. From the breathtaking views to the unimaginable amount of family fun, this is the perfect virtual event. The Finger Lakes area is also New York's largest wine-producing region. Over 100 wineries and vineyards are around Seneca, Cayuga, Canandaigua, Keuka, Conesus, and Hemlock Lakes. Because of the lakes' great depth, they provide a lake effect to the lush vineyards that flank their shores.
