Canandaigua Lake is home to the smallest island—Squaw Island—one of only two islands in the Finger Lakes (the other on Cayuga). You can drive around the entire lake in 60 minutes.

Swim at Kershaw Park in Canandaigua.
Take a walk on the Canandaigua City Pier and check out the uniquely charming Boathouse Row. Interesting fact: Homeowners are prohibited from actually living in these boathouses. They are for daytime use only.
Hike through Grimes Glen to two 60′ waterfalls; there is a 3rd, but it’s only for the daring to access.
Take in the view of the Bristol Hills from “The Jump Off” in Ontario County Park at Gannett Hill.
Take the lift up Bristol Mountain to the top and check out the Aerial Adventure Park and Zip-line Canopy Tour. You can walk up or down the mountain trails, or take the lift both ways.
Follow the Canandaigua Wine Trail
