Seneca Lake Upstate NY
As far as I am concerned nothing beats September and October in Upstate NY. Nights begin to be cool and comfortable but days can still be sunny and warm. 55 degrees at 6 AM on the way to work and 82 degrees at 5 PM on the way home. The leaves begin to change, the grass doesn’t need mowed as much, and the sweet corn at the roadside stands is as good as it gets. The Woolx team is right in the heart of this only 30 minutes from the gorgeous Finger Lakes region in upstate NY. Watkins Glen Gorge, Seneca Lake, Keuka Lake, and more. If you want to visit upstate NY September to October is the best!
Upstate NY Finger Lakes Region
Start out in Watkins Glen and head up the West side of the lake. If wineries are your thing you’ll have plenty to choose from. The views up along the lake are unbeatable and if you hit the fall foliage peak have extra memory cards for your camera as it’s easy to take 100’s of pictures. A little ways North of Watkins Glen, if it’s a Saturday, take a short detour and Head to Penn Yan. Just outside of Penn Yan is a fabulous Farm & Craft Market called The Windmill. Loaded with tons of vendors don’t get stuck here to long. Just remember it’s only open on Saturdays so any other day of the week keep heading North. Once you leave here and get back on track keep heading north to Geneva at the top of the lake. A quaint little town with shops and a great park at the head of the lake. Stop take a few pictures and if you feel like shopping head North East to Waterloo and visit the Premium Outlets for more shopping than you can probably do in a day. Once done there time to head down the East side of the Lake and head back to Watkins.
On the way back make sure you stop at Hazlitt Vineyards, the home of famous Red Cat Wine. It’s always hopping here with lots of activities and events. Once back in Watkins stop in Clute Park and watch the Sunset over the lake. A great way to end a great day of touring Seneca Lake. You’ve only scratched the surface of things to do and see in the Finger Lakes region of NY State.
