Fall Getaway Ideas
The Apple Farm in Victor is perfect for picking your own New York State apples and tasting apple cider. But don’t forget to try the apple cider donuts. They are worth every calorie. Last year your Innkeeper made spiced apples for breakfast. And, of course, picked the apples herself. Well, Mom helped.
The Pick’n Patch, also located just outside of Canandaigua on Routes 5 & 20 on your way to Seneca Lake, the perfect way to spend a few fall hours. Pumpkins, an 8-acre corn maze, mums, fall decorations, farm animals and more. The farm animals alone are worth the visit.
