Located in Western New York, the Finger Lakes are home to some of the most beautiful lakes, waterfalls, and landscapes in America. Coupled with historical landmarks, unique museums, and great wineries, the Finger Lakes are a can't-miss destination, ideal for any RV or camping road trip.
When to go
While you can go year round, we recommend May - October when the weather is a little warmer and the State Parks and other attractions are open.
How to get there
The Finger Lakes region is located in Western New York State. It's about 4 hours drive from New York City.
You can also fly to one of the four airports in the area: Rochester International Airport, Syracuse Hancock International Airport, Elmira Corning Regional Airport and Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport.
How long should the trip be?
You can take this trip at your own pace, but we recommend a three day trip. Three days is the perfect amount of time to travel to each unique area and experience the Finger Lakes the way it was meant to be experienced.
What to see and do
3 Day Visit - The Finger Lakes - Ithaca to Seneca Falls: 153 Miles (198 miles round trip)
You can take Route 89 south back to Ithaca or explore more of the area.
