American Locations 37 – Finger Lakes Region, New York

This trip goes from Cincinnati, Ohio, to the Boston area, then up the New England coast all the way into Canada, then back through the Adirondacks to the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York.

We drove south out of the Adirondack Mountains into Utica, where we got a motel room. We were too exhausted to camp. The next day we took I-90 west to the exit for Seneca Lake. We drove south on 14 to Geneva, the town on the northern shore of this largest of the Finger Lakes. Our first stop was Seneca Lake State Park.

Although there was a small sandy beach with people on it, I didn’t see anyone in the water.

Next, we drove over to see another nearby Finger Lake, Cayuga Lake. On the way we stopped to see the canal connecting these 2 largest Finger Lakes. There were 2 restored canal boats.

And personal boats docked.

At the northern end of Cayuga Lake is Cayuga Lake State Park.

Another sandy beach. This one even had a lifeguard. But no swimmers.

We drove south along the eastern shore of Cayuga Lake and around the southern end of it to the southern end of Seneca Lake, were we found a camp site in Watkins Glen State Park.
