Owasco Lake, unlike the other Finger Lakes, is almost completely surrounded by agricultural land. You can drive around the entire lake in 45 minutes.
City of Auburn (north end)
Catch a show at Merry-go-Round Playhouse
Tour the beautiful Willard Memorial Chapel, an extremely rare example of the work of Louis C. Tiffany and Tiffany Glass and Decoration Co. in that it is the only complete and unaltered Tiffany chapel known to exist.
Morovia (south end)
While not on the lake, Fillmore Glen State Park has a stream-fed swimming pool.
Hike the Owasco Flats Nature Preserve at the south end. There is also a car-top boat launch here.
