EVERYTHING BLOSSOMS IN SPRING
Dear EscapeMakers
— Sure, the air is abuzz with life each May as the world around us awakens fully, but the air in Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes is alive and full of excitement for other reasons, too. After all, May is when you’ll find several special opportunities for fun!

TREAT YOUR SENSES

Grab a friend or loved one, spend a night or two at the Radisson Hotel Corning, and make the most of spring! American art, hot glass, museums, outlets, restaurants, specialty boutiques, wine and so much more are just footsteps away. This special "Tour Corning Museum Package" includes overnight accommodations, breakfast for two, and two tickets to The Rockwell Museum and to The Corning Museum of Glass.

A MONTH OF WINE
Some people would suggest that every month is wine month and we’re not going to disagree, but here in the Finger Lakes we’ve declared May "Finger Lakes Wine Month" making it the official month for celebrating wine. And one way to kick off a month-long celebration is with a special event like Keuka in Bloom (May 2nd-3rd), which combines wonderful wines, tasty herb-inspired foods, and a variety of plants you can take home.

CRAFT YOUR ADVENTURE
Each May, beer enthusiasts around the country celebrate the art of brewing craft beer with a weeklong series of events known as Craft Beer Week. This year in Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes, from May 11th-17th, you can enjoy a number of exciting and unique events worth savoring as part of Finger Lakes Craft Beer Week with everything from delectable treats like hops smoothies and handcrafted ice cream made from local craft beers, to tap takeovers, special beer-paired meals, and one event that will feature a live demonstration that, as far as we can tell, has never been done before anywhere.


CELEBRATE THE FIRE ARTS
America’s "Crystal City" offers a special four-day celebration of glass and the fire arts called GlassFest which has been voted a Top 100 event by the American Bus Association for each of the past two years, as it combines exhilarating hot glassblowing and pottery demonstrations, great food, live music, hands-on activities, shopping and dining specials, and more. Come experience GlassFest, May 21st-24th, and see for yourself just how cool the fire arts can be.

Dear EscapeMakers — Why not spend them in the Hudson Valley, visiting sites along the
400-year history trail representing the pre-Revolutionary war, early Quaker days, the Gilded Age, and the Roosevelt era?

Your first stop could be 1709 at Madam Brett Homestead, the county’s oldest. Fast forward to 1895 – Frederick W. and Louise Vanderbilt purchased the Vanderbilt Mansion. Last stop – 1933, at FDR’s Springwood Estate, to relive the launch of the New Deal.

UPCOMING EVENTS

May 1 – 3:
Rhinebeck Car Show & Swap Meet
, Dutchess County Fairgrounds, Rhinebeck
May 2: Hudson Valley Garden Fair, Montgomery Place, Red Hook/Annandale
June 5 – 7: Country Living Fair, Dutchess County Fairgrounds, Rhinebeck
