We spent six days having a blast at Niagara Falls, NY and Watkins Glen, NY and surrounding areas, including Watkins Glen State Park, Robert E. Treman State Park, and Taughannock Falls State Park. We hope you enjoy our Finger Lakes Region Series:

After visiting Niagara Falls, NY, we enjoyed all that Watkins Glen has to offer, including a stay at Watkins Glen State Park, an incredible visit to The Gorge, and a lovely afternoon at Seneca Lake’s waterfront. The fourth day of our Finger Lakes Journey found us departing from Chateau LaFayette Reneau Winery, our gorgeous Harvest Host destination, and headed over rolling country roads toward Cayuga Lake, the longest of the eleven Finger Lakes in New York.

After an incredible visit to The Gorge and enjoying all that Watkins Glen State Park has to offer, the third day our Finger Lakes journey was spent enjoying Seneca Lake and the town of Watkins Glen. Our evening ended with being wowed by the lakefront views at a winery in Hector, NY.
A Small Village With Big Attractions
The Village of Watkins Glen has a population of about 1,860 people. As small as this town is, it’s quite famous for several things. In addition to The Gorge, the town also has a NASCAR racetrack, called Watkins Glen International. The town is steeped in racing history, including the famous street race, Watkins Glen Grand Prix, which takes place on the hilly roads of the State Park and in the town of Watkins Glen.
