Family Activities:

Skaneateles Lake


Enjoying the astounding beauty of Skaneateles Lake isn’t nearly as difficult as pronouncing its name. The easternmost of the Finger Lakes, this body of water is the perfect day trip for any family looking for nothing more than a lazy, carefree day of relaxation and tranquil enjoyment.

A more popular location in the warmer summer months (for obvious reasons), families will enjoy a long, leisure picnic in the park, sometimes accompanied by live music. Need to stretch your legs? Check out the quaint charm of all the shops, boutiques and restaurants, along with all the surrounding architecture. Some of the buildings date back to the 18th century!

For something a little more structured, check out one of the local boat tours or dinner cruises around the lake! A tourist favorite is Mid-Lakes Navigation: (315) 685-8500.
