Finger Lakes Region

We have a different sort of high rise here, as the landscape of concrete and steel and glass has been replaced by rolling hills, lush valleys, and all sorts of shimmering waterways. Once you've arrived, you can breath again. You can take your time. But a slower pace doesn't have to come at the cost of finer things, like world-class art, awardwinning wine, exceptional food. Oddly enough, it offers more of a chance, not only to savor those very things, but to create them.
