b'WelcomeTwo million years ago, glaciers began sculpting 11 pristine lakes that spread across central New York state like fingers. Native Americans, the first to arrive, said it was the work of the Great Spirit who blessed this land with his hands. Today, we know them as the Finger Lakes, a 9,000 square-mile haven showcasing Mother Natures best workfrom waterfalls and gorges, to cool forests, to rolling farmlands, to miles of spectacular shoreline. The vast region is a four-season playground for outdoor enthusiasts and a treasure trove for lovers of food, drink and entertainment. In this booklet, weve divided the Finger Lakes into four geographic quadrants highlighting 50 top attractions identified by TripAdvisior and local experts at our 14 visitor bureaus. We hope this sampling enriches your visit and inspires your return.
