Experience the thrill of live thoroughbred racing at Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack in Farmington.

- Arts & Cultural — Syracuse is known as a big sports town. Still, the city’s art and cultural attractions shouldn’t be missed.

The Inner Harbor District is home to Central New York Regional Farmer’s Market as well as Destiny USA with its 250 specialty stores and luxury outlets. And the Tipperary Hill neighborhood offers traditional Irish cuisine and import shops.
- Golf Courses & Sports Venues — Most sports fans don’t paint their face orange and scream themselves horse. It is, however perfectly acceptable behavior at the Carrier Dome, home to Syracuse University’s Division I games. If college sports aren’t your thing, cheer on the city’s minor league baseball and hockey team. As for golf, the Finger Lakes region boats several championship courses, including Bristol Harbour Golf Club in Canandaigua.
- Historic Sites & Landmarks — History buffs may be impressed to know that civil rights drew its first tentative breath in the Finger Lakes. Learn about the freedoms won for women with a visit to the Women's Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls or drop by the Harriet Tubman Home in Auburn, which celebrates the life of the former slave who is known for her Underground Railroad activities. Visit the home in Dansville where Clara Barton founded the America Red Cross
- Parks & Outdoor Activities — The Finger Lakes region includes 11 pristine lakes that spread like fingers across the heart of New York state, creating a playground for outdoor enthusiasts. The rivers that connect each finger lake to Lake Ontario are perfect for fishing, swimming and boating. The region’s many state parks — ideal for hiking, biking and camping — include Watkins Glen, with its deep gorges and waterfalls, and the towering cliffs of Chimney Bluff. In winter, these same parks allow snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, while those looking for downhill excitement can hit the slopes at Labrador Mountain.
- Zoos & Aquariums — There’s nothing like a trip to the zoo. The Rosamond Gifford Zoo at Burnet Park houses more than 900 animals, from Siberian tigers to baby elephants.
