What better way to shake off the winter blues than a girlfriend's getaway to the Finger Lakes? The superb wine, relaxing spas, unique shopping, and world class dining is the perfect combination of rest and relaxation for you and your closest friends.
The Finger Lakes are famous for their wineries, a favorite stop for a woman only weekend. Enjoy the superb wines at tasting rooms scattered alongside Keuka Lake. For an upbeat fun wine tasting experience visit Bully Hill Vineyards where they serve wine with laughter and story-telling. For a more refined and educational winery experience visit Ravines Wine Cellars. Their knowledgeable staff gives helpful pairing advice while you sip and savor.
After a day exploring the wineries on the lake spend the next day being pampered at A Touch of Tranquility Massage Therapy and Wellness Spa. Choose from massages, facials, nail and other beauty services, and spend the day relaxing and restoring.
The charming downtowns are home to restaurants that seem unassuming but are serving delicious meals for food lovers of all kinds. Hand + Foot on Market Street feels like you are stepping into a trendy New York City spot from the décor to the menu. Worth the visit is Pleasant Valley Inn in Hammondsport. The more upscale restaurant is quickly becoming a favorite for their farm to table gourmet meals.
