I visited the Finger Lakes area of New York for a family wedding this past weekend. I was born in this area and always feel "home" when I have a chance to visit (which isn't often enough).
If you've never been, you are missing out on good people, good wine, good hiking and some outstanding opportunities to be in nature.
Need some recommendations? Give me a shout out!
