Dear EscapeMakers, Explore the Great Outdoors!
There’s something about being surrounded by nature and breathing in the fresh lake air that does the soul good. In the Finger Lakes, you can really connect with the great outdoors-the lush vineyards, the crystalline lakes, the miles of hiking trails-and the fantastic ways to enjoy it all. Whether you want to go for a bike ride, hike the Finger Lakes Trail, camp under the stars, or simply enjoy being outside, any time spent immersed in the natural beauty of the Finger Lakes will have you feeling revitalized.
The Ultimate “Glamping” Experience!
Hickory Hill Family Camping Resort isn’t your typical pitch-a-tent campground. Sure, you could do that if you’d like, but you can also experience all kinds of luxury when you stay there. When you book the “Just the Two of You” package, you’ll enjoy a two-night stay in either a cabin ($390), cottage ($490), or lodge ($560), all based on double occupancy. Be pampered with a Two by Two Firelight Massage at the on-site Finger Lakes Wellness Center & Health Spa. Also receive a $20 gift certificate for dinner and a welcome basket that includes a bottle of Finger Lakes wine.
Stay at the Radisson Hotel Corning and Taste the Wondrous Wines of Keuka Lake

Keuka Lake has some fantastic wineries with fascinating histories.
A new package from the Radisson Hotel Corning allows you to discover a few of them-and get pampered in the process! Book the Keuka Lake Wine Experience Package with Spa for a stay on select Thursday and Friday nights, and go on a guided wine tour to four Keuka Lake wineries where you’ll enjoy exclusive tasting experiences. Also included in the package is a four-course dinner and glass of Finger Lakes wine at the on-site restaurant Grill 1-2-5, a $100 gift certificate to the on-site AgeLess Spa, and admission to the Corning Museum of Glass. The wine tour is offered through Experience! the Finger Lakes, LLC, and the package starts at $499 per person (double occupancy).
A Must-See Attraction During Your Visit: The Rockwell Museum

After you’ve enjoyed a nature-filled day, why not go to The Rockwell Museum? Open until 8 p.m. daily, visit The Rockwell and experience art about America — the people, land and ideas that shape America through the eyes of American artists. The diverse collection includes a mix of contemporary Native American art with traditional bronze sculptures, landscape paintings and other works that embody America. Traveling with family? The Rockwell’s NEW Family Exploration Studio is a perfect place to spend ‘unplugged’ time together. The Rockwell Museum should be top on your list to visit!
