I think I found the BEST of the Finger Lakes. I arrived yesterday.
Skaneateles has a vibrant downtown with cool stores, boutiques and galleries. The vibe is cosmopolitan and relaxed. There are over twenty restaurants in town.
I saw several vintage automobiles and many motorcycles. The place is full of visitors which is surprising for late-October. The lake is scenic and has pristine water. Most amazing of all are scores of gorgeous lake-side homes. Beautiful architecture.
I'll definitely come back to Skaneateles Lake, assuming I learn how to pronounce it. :-)
