The Canandaigua City Pier may be best described as the place where Main Street meets the water in Canandaigua. The City Pier has been serving boaters, fishermen, and sightseers for over 150 years. Around eighty Historic Boathouses are situated on three fingers on the west side of the pier. Their history takes them from Steamboats, to Railroads, to near demolition to historic designation protection. Today these functional boathouses are among the most photographed spots in Canandaigua. Take a walk or a short scenic drive down the City Pier. Located adjacent to Kershaw Park and the New York Kitchen. The Canandaigua City Pier is photo ready with breath-taking views, unique festivals and historic boat houses. Snap away!
