New York State's Finger Lakes Region 2012       Presented by D&D Travel...

Each Labor Day weekend, we visit the Finger Lakes Wine Country in upstate NY and are never disappointed by the marvelous scenery, the great food & wine, fun antiquing, and all there is to see and do...You can see a movie at a still-operating drive-in theater in the area (the Finger Lakes Drive-In), visit a number of waterfalls, sample wine from wineries too numerous to count, enjoy a meal at a mom and pop restaurant or diner (there are many), explore a well-known Sunday flea market in Avon, NY, pick your own apples and visit many farm stands along the main and back roads. In short, this is a great area for a long weekend or a full week vacation. We hope you will visit the area soon and enjoy all they have to offer!

Hector Falls, albeit a bit low this year, but lovely nonetheless! It is directly along the roadway - NY Route 414 - emptying Hector Falls Creek into Seneca Lake north of Watkins Glen. The cascade is 165 feet high and has a second drop on the opposite side of the road (on private land unfortunately). During high water periods, the sight is lovely!
