More Than You Know. Closer Than You Think.
Readily access a unique region that’s home to a wide array of experiences, activities, and amenities in the Southern Finger Lakes.
Easy Access to Virtually Everything.
The Southern Finger Lakes is a rarity. It is where farmland meets urban cores, dirt roads converge with highways, and lakes and rivers bend around hills and mountains.
The intersections of north-south and east-west interstates and thruways not only make moving throughout the region a breeze, but they also allow easy and convenient access to major metropolitan areas in all directions.
The essentials of life – healthcare, education, retail, entertainment, employment opportunities, and community – are all close by, either walkable or just a short car ride away. It is difficult to imagine where else one can choose to live with so much available right outside the door.
