My favorite summer spot in the Finger Lakes region pretty much anywhere I can be out on the water whether it’s on a paddle board or a boat. Most of the time it’s Canandaigua, since Brad and I live just a few minutes away from the lake, but we are also frequently out on Seneca Lake and occasionally Keuka. Most of the time, we throw our paddle boards on our car and head to Kershaw Park, although we just launched at Onanda Park last week and that might be my new favorite spot. The view of Bare Hill is just beautiful.
We discovered Sylvan Beach 2 years ago and we have made it a tradition to go back every year. It is an hour and a half drive from our house and the kids absolutely love it here. We get to stay in a hotel, which is just a quick walk from the beach. The beach is sandy with sand bars that go out a long way into to water. There is also a carnival within walking distance with rides and ice cream. We just love playing and relaxing in the sand and escaping everyday life for a while.
Sarah and I are always looking for new trails to take our dogs on walks. We get a little tired of walking around our neighborhood everyday, especially when the weather is so nice. We are fortunate to have such a wide variety of options for trails so close to home and we are on the lookout for more!
