Here in the Finger Lakes, summer can be described as one word: coveted – because there's nothing sweeter than what this season brings. Finger Lakes 4th of July fireworks, outdoor adventures under the sun, and beautiful weather for your very own private wine tour: you name it, we've got it.
Start the summer season by getting outside and enjoying the beauty of the Finger Lakes region at one of many wineries or breweries – from the 'Most Fun Small Town in America,' Corning, to lakeside Hammondsport and Keuka Lake. It wouldn't be summer without a Fourth of July celebration and we know how to do the 4th in style. Set the Night to music in Horseheads just outside of Corning, enjoy the always-fun Hammondsport Fireman's Carnival, and get your BBQ on with family and friends as you celebrate our nation's birthday.
With so much to do on the 4th of July and beyond, Corning & the Southern Finger Lakes offers summer adventures all season long. Soak in the sun, head to a fun event, and check out our trip ideas for some assistance in planning your trip, including local tips to help you make the most of your summer visit.
