Finger Lakes Attractions
Corning Museum of Glass
Corning, America's Crystal City, is known for glass. Your Finger Lakes vacation wouldn't be complete without experiencing glass blowing for yourself at the Corning Museum of Glass. If you haven't tried it before, blowing a glass ornament is as exciting as it is easy. And it's SO easy. Corning makes this unique experience even more out of the ordinary because Hands-on Glass Studio is the one place you can work some glassblowing magic with the woman who actually started the hands-on glass movement in the U.S.
Rockwell Museum of Western Art
Not too far away, the Rockwell Museum of Western Art brings together the colorful stories and scenes of the old west and contemporary Native American art. But it also brings together generations of people with its fun interactive activities.
