Things to Do



Bring Something Home

Explore upscale retailers in friendly suburban shopping malls, seek out your favorite brand name stores at the premium outlet center,  or discover small locally run boutiques filled with curated treasures—whatever shopping means to you, you’ll find it in the Finger Lakes.

For an unforgettable shopping experience, venture to Destiny USA—the crown jewel of New York’s retail landscape. Lose yourself in its sprawling expanse of shopping, dining, and entertainment, where every corner offers a new delight to discover. If you’re looking for high-end luxury brands, Eastview Mall caters to the upscale fashion clientele with over thirty stores that are unique to the area.

But the allure of Finger Lakes shopping extends far beyond megaplexes and malls. Journey along picturesque routes adorned with boutique shops, country stores, and antique shops, each offering a unique array of products and souvenirs waiting to be uncovered. The perfect, highly-curated find for loved ones—or yourself—can be found along the tree-lined streets of Corning’s Gaffer District, downtown Skaneateles, or the Ithaca Commons. Find imaginative, whimsical house décor at Mackenzie-Childs, hunt for that elusive collectible at the expansive two-floor Early Owego Antique Center, or pick up a unique trip momento at Finger Lakes Goods.

Between May and October, seize the opportunity to connect directly with our local growers and artisans at the vibrant farmers’ markets. Indulge in the flavors of the region at the Ithaca Farmers Market or CNY Regional Farmers Market, where you can sample and purchase fresh produce to savor at home. Meanwhile, at The Windmill Farm & Craft Market, explore a treasure trove of over 175 shops brimming with hand-crafted items.

From artisanal crafts to locally sourced delights, the Finger Lakes beckon with endless possibilities for finding the perfect gift or keepsake. So, pack light and prepare to shop ’til you drop—it’s an adventure you won’t soon forget.

Read on for a sampling of some of our local favorites, and be sure to explore each county for many more choices!
