Are you looking to plan a trip this year? Well, what if we told you that you could plan an extravagant trip all while staying in New York? That’s right, you read that correctly. According to this article from Bloomberg Pursuits, the Finger Lakes region is one of the best places to travel to in 2020 alongside places like Budapest, Jamaica, and Cairo.

And did somebody say wine? The Finger Lakes are not only known for their beautiful waterfall-studded state parks, but they are also known for their amazing wine creations. The area counts more than 100 wineries, including Red Tail Ridge which was the first to win a coveted James Beard nomination last year!


Plus, fun fact, did you know that American Girl founder, Pleasant Rowland owns five inns in Aurora? Also, the Brooklyn-based designers at Studio Tack will open the Lake House on Canandaigua complete with a spa and timber-framed event barn this summer! Needless to say, there are so many cool wines to taste and places to visit when you travel to the Finger Lakes.

The best time to travel to the Finger Lakes is during their harvest time in August and September. However, there truly is never a bad time to drink wine, so May and early June are also great times to travel!
