Don’t let car troubles ruin your summer travels


ake certain your vehicle is ready for summer travel. Whether you do your own maintenance or depend on the pros, summer service let’s you undo the wear and tear of winter’s tough conditions. Take a look at the following tips from the experts at the nonprofit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). • First things first. Read your owner’s manual and follow the manufacturer’s recommended service schedules. • Engine Performance. Get engine driveability problems (hard starts, rough idling, stall-

ing, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good repair shop. Replace dirty filters, air, fuel, PCV, etc. • Fuel. A gas tank that’s kept filled helps prevent moisture from forming. • Oil: Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual more often (every 3,000 miles or so) if your driving is mostly stop-and-go or consists of frequent short trips. • Cooling System. The cooling system should be flushed and refilled as recommended. The level, condition, and concentration of the coolant should be checked periodi-

Quality Used Vehicles

cally. DIYers, never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled! The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps, and hoses should be checked by a pro. • Windshield Wipers. Replace old blades. Stock up on windshield washer solvent; you’ll be surprised how much you use. • Battery. The only accurate way to detect a weak battery is with professional equipment. Routine care: Scrape away corrosion from posts and cable connections; clean all surfaces; retighten all connections. If battery caps are removable, check fluid level monthly. A word of caution: Removal of cables can cause damage or loss of data/codes on some newer vehicles. Check your manual. Be sure to avoid contact with corrosive deposits and battery acid. Wear eye protection and rubber gloves. • Lights: Inspect all lights and bulbs; replace burned out bulbs; periodically clean road grime from all lenses. To prevent scratching, never use

a dry rag. • Exhaust System. Your vehicle should be placed on a lift and the exhaust system examined for leaks. The trunk and floorboards should be inspected for small holes. Exhaust fumes can be deadly. • Tires: Examine tires for remaining tread life, uneven wearing, and cupping; check the sidewalls for cuts and nicks. Check tire pressure once a month. Let the tires “cool down” before checking the pressure. Rotate as recommended. Don’t forget your spare, and be sure the jack is in good condition. • Emergencies: Carry blankets, flares, a small shovel, a flashlight, and a fully charged cell phone. Put a few “high-energy” snacks in your glove box. SOURCE: The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) was founded in 1972 as a nonprofit, independent organization dedicated to improving the quality of automotive service and repair through the voluntary testing and certification of automotive technicians. ASE-certified technicians wear blue and white ASE shoulder insignia and carry credentials listing their exact area(s) of certification. Their employers often display the blue and white ASE sign.

ew York grows more apple varieties than any other state. With nearly 700 growers and 10,000,000+ trees, the New York Apple Association says enough apples are produced each year to bake 500 million apple pies! Before the mid-19th century, the “term” cider referred to fermented (alcoholic, or “hard”) cider. Hard cider was a staple of the English colonials’ diet. Unsure of the water supply, settlers immediately planted orchards and hard cider was the drink of the day.Then came urbanization and an influx of other settlers who preferred beer. Hard cider all but disappeared from the menu until the late 20th century, when artisanal hard cider making began a renaissance. Today you can discover cideries, tasting rooms, restaurants, and retailers along the growing Finger Lakes Cider Trail. These

ine and cheese are a perfect combination, especially in the Finger Lakes where locally crafted wines can be paired with locally made cheeses. The Finger Lakes Cheese Alliance is an organization of cheese producers from throughout the Finger Lakes who make artisan cheeses from milk produced at their family dairy farms. Treat your palate to everything from English style raw milk cheddars, cheese curd, gouda and Swiss types from dairy cow milk to blue cheeses, chevre and feta from goat and sheep milk.

The Alliance includes 7 Destination Farms (most with regular hours year-round, and a few with irregular or seasonal hours), plus 6 Production Farms. Find their visiting hours on the website’s Hours Page, and directions on the Map Page at the Cheese Alliance website. The Alliance, however, advises that you always call ahead because, as working farms, hours of operation vary from farm-to-farm and season-to-season. Trail representatives also suggest that you not try to do the whole trail in one day. Go to the Finger Lakes Cheese Alliance website, look at the map and plan your route by grouping four or five creameries together. The popular 9th Annual Finger Lakes Cheese Festival, organized by the Finger Lakes Cheese Alliance, is on July 25th at Sunset Creamery, 1618 County Route 15, Odessa. It is a fun-filled family day offering cheeses from Alliance members, plus homemade jams, jellies, baked goods, fresh produce, art and games for the kids. Wine, beer and cider tastings, pairings and cooking demos are available throughout the day.

Experience the Essence of Wine with

the Seven S’s of Wine Tasting

Fingerlakeswinecountry.com • SEE the wine: the color, the clarity, and intensity. • SWIRL the glass to release the aromas. • SMELL the wine. This begins your tasting experience; discover the qualities and aromas of the wine like spicy, nutty, fruity, floral, or anything else you can use to describe what you are experiencing. There is not right or wrong answer. • SIP the wine. Take a small amount of the wine in your mouth along with a small bit of air, almost slurping the wine in – this will aerate the wine further, releasing more

aromas onto your palate. • SAVOR the wine. Swish the wine around, hitting every part of your mouth. • SPIT/SWALLOW the wine. It is perfectly acceptable to utilize the spit buckets, especially when you are driving from winery to winery. • SCORE the wine. Create your own scoring system and take notes. This reflects your personal experience of the wine. Keep a wine journal that you can take with you to the gift shop after your tasting or to the wine store at home in the future to make your purchasing choice easy.

Aurora Stylish, historic, gracious


estled on the eastern shore of Cayuga Lake, Aurora is a small, picture-perfect Finger Lakes village filled with charm and things to do.

It is home to Wells College, founded in 1868 by Henry Wells of Wells Fargo fame. Today, the village center is anchored by the beautifully restored Aurora Inn and offers an eclectic collection of shops and eateries, from Jane Morgan’s stylish clothes and Michael Montgomery’s Vintage Lighting to fine dining at the Inn, pub fare at the Fargo, an ice cream parlor, a pizza restaurant and the village market. Stop in at Bet the Farm to taste their own wines, plus a quality selection of other wines and gourmet foods from the region. Just outside the village you will find the restored Victorian farm and workshops of MacKenzie-Childs, the internationally known maker of whimsical hand-crafted tableware, home furnishings and accessories. Swing over to Long Point Winery where you can sample wines indoors or out while enjoying sweeping views of Cayuga Lake. Nearby Long Point State Park is a great place to stop for a swim, sail or other water activities. Outdoor enthusiasts will also enjoy biking along the lake on the Route 90 Scenic Byway.

Township 5 - Camillus Camillus


amillus, a popular suburb west of Syracuse, was part of the former Central New York Military Tract. Joseph Sherwood, the first pioneer arrived around 1795 at the site of the village of Camillus. Industrial development was promoted by the Erie Canal in 1825. Camillus was also on the railroad line linking Syracuse to Auburn in 1838. Today you’ll find an interesting look at the Erie Canal at the Erie Canal Park. The Camillus area offers great shopping opportunities in three distinct areas, including: Township 5, a multi-use center; the Town of Camillus along West Genesee Street (Route 5) with top name retailers at Camillus Commons and Fairmount Fair Shopping Center; and Main Street in the Village of Camillus with unique shops and boutiques. In the following pages we’ll take a closer look at each area.

Sims’ Museum is a replica of the original Sims canal store, constructed by John Sims prior to 1860, which was located on the Erie Canal about two miles east of the present location. The store was stocked with anything the canal fleet needed in the way of medicines, cooking tools, food & water, kerosene & coal, apparel, animal feed & equipment, and hardware. The store provided for all the needs and supplies for the canal boats, including groceries, hardware, feed, and other supplies. Hours: The Erie Canal Park is open year-round for picnicking, hiking, jogging, bicycling, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, fishing, and non-motorized craft boating and canoeing on the canal.

The Village of Camillus

2020 Vacationer | Page 33

Village of Camillus


he Village of Camillus, a quaint village surrounded by the hills of Camillus, was home to the world-renowned Camillus Cutlery Factory, which unfortunately caught fire in 2013 and burned down. Since then, the headquarters building has been renovated into a mixed-use commercial, retail and residential space. It is easy to spot as you stroll the village streets and take in the relaxed atmosphere and eclectic range of boutique shops and restaurants. Of historical importance: On January 17, 1852 a call for a Free Soil meeting in Camillus Village had three hundred and thirty-six signers, and the meeting has been claimed as the first in the United States distinctly on the lines of what later became the Republican Party. It opposed the Fugitive Slave law and the admission of slave states.

Elbridge E

lbridge is a town in Onondaga County. It contains the villages of Jordan and Elbridge. Elbridge is the smaller of the two, incorporated in 1848. What is now Route 5 was built on Native American trails in 1805 to connect Jordan and Elbridge. The Erie Canal was important to the commercial development of both villages. Today as you drive on Route 5 through both villages you will see many beautiful 19th century historic homes. Elbridge, like Camillus, was formed from tracts of land given as payment to Revolutionary War veterans. History continues to make its mark in Elbridge as it was named for Elbridge Gerry, a former Massachusetts governor who participated in the Boston Tea Party, signed the Declaration of Independence and was the fifth Vice President of the United States.

Hammondsport L

ocated at the southern tip of Keuka Lake, Hammondsport is a low-key village just right for a stress-free summer get-away. Water views are never far from sight. Near the village square, shops in town (with names like Lime Berry, Scandia House, Browsers and Keuka Artisan Bakery), plus antique stores, nearby wineries and breweries, great historic museums and plenty of opportunities for beach and water activities offer visitors the choices that led Budget Travel magazine readers to name Hammondsport “America’s Coolest Small Town.” Hammondsport’s first nickname was “The Wine Village,” as it became a center for the New York wine industry and one of the oldest continuous makers of wine in the United States. It began in 1829 when the Rev. William Bostwick successfully cultivated Catawba and Isabella vines behind his rectory to produce communion wine. In 1860, Charles Champlin founded Pleasant Valley Wine Company, which became the first federally licensed winery in America. Today you can visit Pleasant Valley’s original stone buildings, now the home of the Great Western Winery and Visitors Center. More than a dozen wineries surround Keuka Lake and comprise the Keuka Lake Wine Trail. Several iconic wineries, including award-winning Dr. Konstantin Frank’s Vinifera Wine Cellars, Bully Hill Vineyards Winery and Heron Hill Winery, are minutes from Hammondsport. Known as the Cradle of Aviation, Hammondsport is home to the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum. American motorcycle designer, manufacturer and recognized expert on gasoline engines, Glenn Hammond Curtis resided in Hammondsport. He was the first person to introduce aviation into the public eye when he flew his “JuneBug” over Keuka Lake on July 4, 1908. Curtiss is also known as the “Father of Naval Aviation,” and for many other pioneering inventions he created in Hammondsport.

ike many Finger Lakes towns named in the 19th century American infatuation with the classics, Homer was named for the great Greek poet. Homer offers the beauty of its historic Federal, Greek Revival, Italianate and Queen Anne mansions lined along a grassy, tree-filled Village Green on Main Street.The Green brims with fairs, festivals, music, community events and a Saturday Farmers Market all summer long. Main Street’s boutiques, gift shops, bakery and eclectic eateries are great additions to a leisurely stroll. Tucked behind Main Street you will find the Tioughnioga River crossed by three truss bridges built in 1881, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Two of the bridges are still in operation. Fish or drop your kayak in the water at Durkee Park on the North end of Main Street. A day or weekend in Homer will fit the bill for a relaxing, interesting summer break.

Today Lafayette can boast its location at the crossings of two of the longest roads in the United States – Route 20 and Route 11 – spanning all the way from Canada to Florida and from the East coast to the West.

Montour Falls

She-Qua-Ga Falls, Montour Falls.

2020 Vacationer | Page 79

The “Valley of Tumbling Waters”


urrounded by hills rising 1,000 feet, Montour Falls is the focal point for seven natural glens that radiate from its borders, with more than a score of waterfalls to see. The 165-foot waterfall located on the west end of the village is of special note as it seems like it should flow right down Main Street. History permeates the village. Montour Falls was once the site of a Seneca Indian tribe, which was destroyed along with 40 other Amerindian villages by Sullivan’s army in 1779. The Iroquois Long House Council Chambers of the Haudenosaunee was located here. The village was named after Queen Catherine Montour, a prominent Native American woman of Seneca Indian heritage who lived at the village site during the 18th century. Montour Falls was an important trade stop and travel hub, playing an important role on the Seneca Lake inlet when the Chemung Canal was built in 1827 to connect Seneca Lake with the Chemung River. Homes in the Historic District offer a glimpse into this era. Enjoy a leisurely stroll in this Finger Lakes gem.

Montour Falls Attractions Eagle Cliff Falls

Located in a beautiful city park, complete with a picnic area, campground and playground, you will find beautiful Eagle Cliff Falls. At the far end of the park, a quarter mile trail follows along McClure Creek. The first water feature is a tiered cascade, as the creek descends a series of rock steps. Not too far up the trail, a series of steps leads beside the 40-foot Eagle Falls as it pours out of a deep gorge. The small gorge by steep-sided cliffs is made up of layers of stained limestone. Look closely and you will discover a spread-wing eagle profile in the stone.

The Glorious T

The village streets of Montour Falls are lined with a pleasant mix of architectural styles, varying from the clean lines of craftsman to the ornate designs of Greek Revival and Victorian. The best examples are located at what is called “the Glorious T,” where West Main Street meets Genesee Street and mid19th century homes surround the 156-foot Shequa-ga Falls. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, the Village of Montour Falls offers a self-guided tour of the historic district. The audio journey is free and can be accessed via your cell phone and lasts about 25 minutes.

Montour Falls Historic Loop Trail

The Montour Falls Historic Loop Trail (MFHLT) was created by the Finger Lakes Trail Conference and is part of the nearly 1,000-mile Finger Lakes Trail Sys-

tem. The MFHLT is around 5-miles and features three waterfalls, including She-Qua-Ga Falls, Eagle Cliff Falls and Deckertown Falls. The hike is described as easy, mostly level walking. The Finger Lakes Trail Conference (fingerlakestrail.org) features a special map of the Montour Falls Historic Loop Trail with description that they sell on their website.

Newfield Covered Bridge

Built in the1850s, the Newfield Bridge is the oldest covered bridge in New York State that still supports daily traffic. Saved from being torn down in the 60s by dedicated citizens, the bridge was restored in 1972, raising the entire bridge a foot, increasing the height of the portal entrances and adding two additional trusses. By 1998, a large-scale restoration included abutment and bank stabilization, new decking and roofing, a pedestrian bridge, the Musser overlook and a picnic area. Located close to Montour Falls, make a stop and enjoy this picturesque touch of history.

Schuyler County Historical Society

108 N. Catherine St./Route 14, Montour Falls 607-535-9741; schuylerhistory.org The Schuyler County Historical Society tells the big history of this small county at its Brick Tavern Museum (a large Federal-style structure built in 1828 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places), and at the Wickham Rural Life Center and Lee School. From the Lamoka Village, one of the earliest human settlements in the Northeastern United States to the area’s spectacular glacially formed waterfalls, the stories of Schuyler County are told in exhibits of artifacts, paintings, furniture, tools, toys, clothing and more. Genealogical resources and educational speakers and workshops are available throughout the year. A gift shop offers books on local history and handmade items from area artists. Hours: 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday (and 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Saturday in July, August and September). Closed on Mon. and holidays. Free admission.

She-Qua-Ga Falls

Dropping 156-feet into the “Glorious T,” She-qua-ga Falls seems to flow right into the heart of Montour Falls. Located at the intersection of Main and Genesee Streets, it is a big part of the Montour Falls Historic District. Two dozen structures line Genesee Street, including the courthouse, sheriff’s office, the lovely Montour Memorial Library and many wellkept 19th-century homes. Known as Tumbling Waters to Native Americans, She-qua-ga Falls is often referred to simply as Montour Falls by those having difficulty pronouncing the Indian name. From the park, built at the base of the falls, banks of lights create a beautiful night setting. Mill Creek Bridge spans the head of the falls and offers another great view of the town and the waterfall.

Penn Yan A friendly place


enn Yan, the largest town on Y-shaped Keuka Lake, traces its unusual name to its early Pennsylvania and Yankee settlers, many of whom came to Yates County as followers of Jemima Wilkinson, the first American born woman to form a religious society in America, and her group, the “Society of Universal Friends.” Old Order Mennonite families are recent arrivals to the area. Beginning in 1974, many families of the Groffdale Conference Mennonite Church moved to Yates County from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, seeking affordable farmland. The Yates County Old Order Mennonites settlement is the largest horse-and-buggy community in the state of New York If you are a boating enthusiast, you probably have heard of or ridden on a wooden or fiberglass boat built by the Penn Yan Boat Company. The company, established in 1921 by a German native, Charles A. Hermann, was known for its patented “Tunnel Drive” concept, which provided better boat speed and stability. Today, Penn Yan’s Main Street offers a friendly place to stroll with its eclectic mix of vintage architecture, art gallery, bookstore, shops and restaurants. The community prides itself in looking after each other and in being approachable. Stop in at the Visitors Center on NY Route 14A just south of the village and ask for the “historic Main Street Walking Tour,” which will give you the details on this National Register Historic District.

Part natural wonder and part “industrial archaeology,” the 7-mile Keuka Lake Outlet Trail is built on the track bed of the old Fall Brook Railroad (1884-1974), which, in turn, followed the towpath of the historic Crooked Lake Canal (18331877) that once connected Keuka and Seneca lakes by dropping 270 feet over 8 miles through the ravine created by the Keuka Outlet Creek. Lining the trail are remnants of the old gristmills, sawmills and distilleries. Remnants of the Crooked Lake Canal, with its 27 locks, run along the north side of the outlet. An elevation drop of nearly 400 feet, beautiful scenery, gorgeous waterfalls and unusual plant life combine to make this an excellent hike for all enthusiasts. June 13-14: Keuka Arts Festival. The Keuka Arts Festival is a fine art and skilled craft show held annually along the Keuka Lake Outlet Trail, only a few blocks from downtown Penn Yan.

Tipperary Hill Neighborhood and the Upside-Down Traffic Light

Tompkins St. and Milton Ave., Syracuse Tipp Hill was settled by Irish Erie Canal workers and Irish immigrants who took great pride in their heritage.

A statue of the “Stonethrowers” is on the corner. Nearby, Coleman’s Authentic Irish Pub at 100 S. Lowell Ave. (315-476-1933) and Cashel House Irish Import Gift Shop make this a fun destination.

-burg, as the locals call Trumansburg, is approximately 12 miles north of Ithaca on the west side of Cayuga Lake.

Trumansburg’s rich history dates back well over 200 years. Largely Iroquois and Algonquin Indian land prior to the late 1700’s, the area was awarded to Abner Treman, a captain in the Revolutionary War, for his distinguished service in various campaigns in and around New York State. The village was incorporated in 1872, in the former Central New York Military Tract, and was a mill town and commercial center for the agricultural community from its inception until the Second World War. In the latter half of the 20th century, the village became home to many faculty and staff at nearby Cornell University and Ithaca College, as well as many musicians. Between 1961-70, Robert Moog built electronic music equipment including Theremins and his famous synthesizers in Trumansburg. Official home of the Finger Lakes GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance (July 16-19, 2020), Trumansburg Fairgrounds has also showcased the annual Trumansburg Fair since the 1800’s.

Tully I

n the heart of Central New York about 18 miles north of Syracuse, Tully offers a warm, small-town atmosphere and beautiful surrounding landscapes. The great glaciers of the Ice Age provided even more than good farmlands, soils and favorable industrial sites. Glacial erosion formed long steep hill slopes perfect for skiing. As the glacier receded, masses of buried ice melted, leaving sags and depressions that now hold the lovely Tully Lakes. These kettle lakes attract wildlife and people.

Centreport Aqueduct & Aqueduct Park

Route 31 West, Weedsport eriecanal.org/CentreportAqueduct.html
 The Erie Canal was the engineering marvel of its time and this is a great place to study its engineering ingenuity. Located in the town of Brutus near Weedsport, the historic Centerport Aqueduct was opened in 1855 and originally carried the Erie Canal over a confluence of North and Cold Springs Brooks. It was named “Centre Port” Aqueduct because it was located almost in the exact middle of Section 7 of the Erie Canal. It is a three-span structure that was constructed with stone abutments and wooden beams made from white oak and pine. The trough was made from hemlock. It is one of the original 33 aqueducts built during the construction of the Erie Canal. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Aqueduct is unusual as it incorporates a dam into the stonework structure. The park has several picnic tables and small grills but does not have restrooms or electricity available. All trash must be removed. Hours: dawn to dusk.
