Make this 4th of July a day to remember by celebrating in Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes. Take to the streets of Hornell for the annual parade, or head to Hammondsport for the Fireman's Carnival. For something out of the ordinary, bring your dancing shoes to Bath for Music in the Park, or feel the wind whip through your hair as you witness some of the world's best sport car drivers compete at high speeds in Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen. However you choose to spend the day, make sure to end your night at one of the region's spectacular firework displays!
With the kids out of school and the youthful energy of summer in the air, now is the perfect time to experience Finger Lakes camping. Set amongst the picturesque countryside, with rolling green hills, sparkling lakes, miles of vineyards and enchanting forests, our campgrounds offer an up-close-and-personal outdoor experience. Hike, bike, fish or swim. Visit the gorgeous gorges and waterfalls of Stony Brook State Park or sample the region's renowned wines. Whether you pitch a tent, reserve a rustic cabin, or bring your own home-away-from-home RV, you will enjoy all the solitude of nature without ever being far from modern entertainment or amenities.
All this activity is sure to work up an appetite. Luckily, the restaurants in Corning have just the thing to satisfy. With a wide variety of both traditional and eclectic cuisine, your taste buds will have as much fun in the Finger Lakes as you! From local fare to ethnic flare, casual BBQ to elegant bistros, there are a multitude of possibilities for every occasion and every palate. We highly recommend that you pair your meal with one of the region's craft brews or fine Finger Lakes wines as well.
