The Town of Watkins Glen

This town is famous for its raceway. I'm not a fan of NASCAR, but there is a great deal more here. Watkins Glen State Park is one of the most beautiful in the country. You can take a boat ride on Seneca Lake. Tour the nearby wineries. Browse in the shops and cafes on Decatur St. There's plenty here.

Watkins Glen State Park

This is one of the best state parks anywhere. And it's just outside downtown Watkins Glen.

Seneca Lake

This is the largest and deepest of the Finger Lakes. Take a boat ride, or charter a fishing boat.
