Take Planning off of your Agenda with Cayuga County Tourism

The beauty and bounty of summer is nearly upon us, and that means it’s time to make the most of it.

For friends, families and couples looking for a getaway without the hassle of planning what you’ll do, Cayuga County Tourism invites you to savor summer in the Finger Lakes with these tips.

What’s time away without good food to enjoy? Make choosing a restaurant easy by asking the experts.

When booking your accommodations, ask for recommendations based on the kind of dining experience, price range and cuisine you prefer. On the top of most locals’ lists, in addition to Travel and Leisure Magazine, is Moro’s Table.

Food can also be part of your getaway activities. If touring farm markets and cheese makers along with wineries sounds like your kind of adventure, check out Elderberry Pond. Besides being an organic farm, restaurant and farm stand, it also offers seasonal gardening classes and kitchen demonstrations. More information is at:

The Finger Lakes are known for their wines, and there are a variety of ways to incorporate them into your trip.

The Aurora Inn, for example, offers a “Wine Country Getaway Package” including a one-night stay, and 6-hour private wine tour with a specially prepared picnic basket lunch.

If you decide to tour the wineries yourself, make it easy by taking a map and suggestions along with you. Go to for suggested itineraries, downloadable wine tour maps, and contacts for escorted wine tour operators.

Be Merry
The best part of a getaway can be doing absolutely nothing. Maybe that means a leisurely morning in bed, or a stroll along one of the five Finger Lakes.

If a spa day seems like just the thing you need, stop by The Center for themed treatments and soak in the luxury of a summer day.

No matter what you choose to do, make your getaway memorable and effortless this summer.
