“Fall” In Love with Wine and Beer Tours

It's never too early to start planning Fall adventures. It's my favorite season after all, and I know it is for many others too. The warm afternoons and cool nights, beautiful changing scenery to rich oranges and reds, and of course the wineries and breweries always have something new and tasty to try. Make it easy for yourself and experience all of this and more at once on a Keuka Lake wine or beer tour.

Crafting Beer in the Finger Lakes

We have some pretty fantastic breweries here in Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes. While we can talk about how great the products they serve are, and they are, it's hard to capture just how proud the brewers are of their craft and how much love they have for their home. So instead of me trying to explain it I thought the best way would be to let a brewer himself tell you all about what it is like to have a brewery in the Finger Lakes.

Summer Happenings in Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes

One of the best things about Summer is all of the fun-filled events going on. There are festivals and barbeques, live music, farmers markets, and so much more.

National Travel and Tourism week is America's annual salute to travel and tourism. This year it is happening May 1st through the 7th. You might be thinking great I'll have to travel somewhere far away to celebrate tourism. The great news? You don't have to go very far, just look in your own back yard.
