Finger Lakes Touring Tips – July 2020

These past few months have been an educational, uncertain and fast-paced time for all of us. We applaud each and every one of you for your ingenuity, creativity and flexibility – we are proud to represent Ontario County!

What has been happening around the county in the past couple of months? Quite a lot! Read on for some highlights we want to share, as we look forward to being a safe yet fun getaway destination.

First up, a great outdoor experience:

The Ontario County Historical Society Garden Tour 2020
Get into the fresh air and enjoy a Garden Tour in Beautiful Canandaigua. 11 AM to 4 PM Saturday, July 18, 2020.

Social Distancing Around Ontario County

If we have learned anything in the past few months, it’s that the creativity in our tourism industry cannot be beaten! Here are some spots thinking outside the box to keep their visitors safe:

Roots Café sure knows how to maximize space! (see above photos)

Belhurst is asking groups of 8 or larger in the tasting room to reserve their time, and not admitting groups larger than 10.

Main Street Arts is offering virtual tours online to supplement their appointment-based in-person exhibits.

Simply Crepes is spreading their guests between inside dining and outside dining on the patio.

Kindred Fare is all about flexibility, with indoor dining, two different spots outdoors and a thriving takeout option still going strong. (see above photos)

New Spots in Town

There have been some new open signs flipped around since we spoke last, and we couldn’t be more excited! Have you checked out:

Gleason’s Food & Drink? Dine on the rooftop for a beautiful view of Canandaigua’s Main Street and glimpses of the lake!

The Sand Bar? The highly anticipated return of the Sand Bar is here, and visitors and locals alike couldn’t be more excited!
