Day 1

This morning we depart for our touring between Cayuga and Seneca Lakes. Our first stop this afternoon will be Taughannock Falls State Park and its namesake waterfall, one of the outstanding natural attractions of the northeast. Taughannock Falls plunges 215 feet past rocky cliffs that tower nearly 400 feet above the gorge. Gorge and rim trails offer spectacular views from above the falls and from below at the end of the gorge trail. We will then travel a short distance to Seneca White Deer for a tour of the world's largest herd of white, white-tailed deer, other wildlife and relics of 60 years of secret weapons storage. We will visit one of the 519 earth-covered concrete igloos that stored everything from pistol ammunition to tactical missiles, from conventional bombs to nuclear warheads on a narrated trip behind the fences of the former Seneca Army Depot. Our lodging for the next two evenings will be located in Geneva, on the northwest shore of Seneca Lake. This evening we will enjoy a cruise on the Canandaigua Lady, for a delicious dinner and gorgeous views of Canandaigua Lake.

Day 2

Following breakfast at the hotel, we will depart for a day of touring around Keuka Lake. Our first stop will be a visit to the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum, among the most notable aviation museums in the United States due to its focus on the accomplishments of Glenn H. Curtiss, aviation pioneer and early motorcycle manufacturer. The museum includes a sizeable collection of early aircraft and motorcycles, which illustrate the innovative genius of Glenn Curtiss. The centerpiece of the motorcycle collection is an exact reproduction of the famous 8-cylinder motorcycle which earned Curtiss the title of "Fastest Man on Earth" in 1907 with a land-speed record of 136.4 mph. We will enjoy free time for lunch on your own in Hammondsport, at the southwest tip of Keuka Lake. This afternoon we will visit Bully Hill Winery for a tour and tasting. The tour and tasting experience at Bully Hill is definitely one of the most unique in the Finger Lakes. The experience begins with a 30 minute walking tour of the estate followed by a 20 minute tasting extravaganza. Leaving from the Visitor's Center your guide will elaborate on the unique history of Bully Hill and Walter S. Taylor (Bully Hill's founder). He or she will then continue with a discussion of viticulture in the Finger Lakes, elaborate on the grape growing process, and wrap up the tour with a visit to their winemaking facility. Following the tour, you are welcome to join one of Bully Hill's wine tastings. Your BHV Tasting All Star will educate you in every step of properly sampling Bully Hill wine. We will then return to the hotel to freshen up for this evening's dinner and entertainment. Tonight will be a special treat as we dine in Edgar's Steakhouse on the shores of Seneca Lake in the 1880's Belhurst Castle. After dinner we will enjoy a show at Merry-Go-Round Playhouse.

This morning, after breakfast, we will check-out and depart for home. En route we will stop in Corning to visit the Corning Museum of Glass. The Museum's campus is home to the world's most comprehensive collection of glass, the world's foremost library on glass, and one of the top glass working schools in the world. Our visit will include a hands-on Fun with Glass glassworking adventure, where you will create a blown glass ornament or shape molten, honey-like glass, into a flower. You will also have plenty of free time to enjoy the many glass blowing demonstrations, displays and exhibits. Lunch will be on your own at the museum café. With a stop for dinner en route, arrival home is scheduled for later this evening.
