Canandaigua: A taste of the Finger Lakes

Canandaigua was featured in Leisure Group Magazine’s online exclusive feature on Friday. They had plenty of great things to say about Canandaigua and the region in general…The Finger Lakes region of western New York State abounds with cozy towns, vineyards, orchards, vegetable farms and dairies. With 100+ wineries, it’s the largest of New York’s grape-growing regions and a paradise for foodies who chow down on the agricultural bounty. Sampling and sipping your way through the countryside is a popular pastime.If you could plop a group down anywhere in the region, I would recommend the town of Canandaigua. The Inn on the Lake, a 134-room resort hotel on the north end of Canandaigua Lake, made the perfect base camp for our group as we explored the northwestern Finger Lakes region.The waterfront property is just next door to the New York Wine & Culinary Center and an easy walk into downtown Canandaigua, both group-friendly spots. During a cooking class in the fancy, hands-on kitchen at the New York Wine & Culinary Center, we rolled up our sleeves and made chicken fajitas.Read the full feature and check out the photos at LeisureGroupTravel.com.
