Anything good I must see or do while there??

I'm going next weekend with two friends just for an overnight trip. There is an outlet mall there that my one friend is dying to go to. I'm just going along for the ride! LOL

AIM...my son's grandmother lives on Lake Canandaigua. It is absolutely gorgeous country. My son goes to college at the University of Rochester. You can take a cruise on Lake Canandaigua. The water is so crystal clear and beautiful. I'll see if I can get a hold of him and find out some good restaurants, etc. there.

We toured winerys, had the best omelet I've ever had in my life (will have to ask SU where it was) and hiked down a beautiful gorge (have to ask SU where that was too)

I go to Ithaca quite a bit. It's on Lake Cayuga. Definitely visit some wineries.

Have a good time Amy. It must be nice to get away by yourself for a little bit.

Oh, and good luck with the deck this weekend!

AIM,

I finally got a response back from my son. Not sure if it is helpful to you at all:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Depends how broad of an area they're willing to travel in.. i imagine none
of the vineyards are anything to look at yet. There's a very good
restaurant in the town of West bloomfield, at the intersection.

Canandaigua has either the captain gray's boat tours or the canandaigua lady
- the latter is more formal, the former more laid back. i believe drinks
and food can be available on either. Eddie O'brien's downtown is the good
canandaigua bar/grille.

Seneca and cayuga lake, to the east, both have some beautiful fields and
views.. geneva is north on the next lake over and a small town with a nice
college campus there.. the next lake over, and a few hour drive, is ithaca,
with a gorgeous scenic route and a nice natural history museum on the south
side, as well as obviously cornell's gorgeous campus.

Rochester has the east end cultural district with coffeeshops, trendy bars,
an independent theatre, and obviously eastman, as well as good food at
dinosaur barbeque at broad and st. paul, nick tahoe's (the inventor of the
garbage plate, rochester's other indigenous food), or the beale street grill
in the south wedge area (south and alexander, i believe).

It's a short drive up to the lake and ontario beach (west mouth of the
genesee river), but i shan't bet on it. Nice biking/hiking trails of the
town of mendon (rt. 64), as well as along the genesee.

Lilacs up in rochester, maybe in highland park.. not sure when the lilac
festival is, though.
