In Corning, NY and Steuben County, the temps can get up to 2300°F! At least, they can at The Corning Museum of Glass (CMOG), home to the largest collection of glass art and historical glass in the world. Swing down through the Southern Finger Lakes and you can catch glass-blowing and breaking demonstrations all day long. Explore over 3,500 years of glass history at CMOG or participate in a Make-Your-Own Glass class and take a treasure home for yourself.

There is something for everyone here – wine tasting, boutique shopping, farm-fresh foods, award-winning breweries, scenic drives, and some of the best sweet and savory bites you’ll ever have the chance to enjoy.
