The largest and deepest of the Finger Lakes, Seneca Lake sports the largest selection of wineries in the region. Watkins Glen, home of the Watkins Glen International Race Track, resides on its southern shore, while the city of Geneva adorns the northern lakefront.
I have a very fond feeling for this lake for my teaching career started in Geneva when it was a relatively undeveloped lakeside. Now it is bustling with wineries and places to eat along both sides.
Watkins Glen State Park is awesome to hike for its natural sights.
