One of the many benefits of living near the Finger Lakes is the great beaches lining the crystal waters. At the south end of town, where Main Street meets the pier, Kershaw Park sits like a little bastion of sun and serenity. It offers the best views of Canandaigua Lake, and is open to the public for a small parking fee. On any given day in the summertime, you can find beachgoers and families enjoying the sandy paradise and soaking up some rays. There are volleyball courts, picnic tables, pavilions, and walking trail on the outskirts of the park, which make for great running trails.
Pageant of Steam
This town was a major railroad junction back in the day, and a center for farmers to bring their crops to sell. To celebrate that fact every year, they hold a huge fair called the Pageant of Steam. Here, you can find amazing displays of old and antique farm equipment and demonstrations on the machinery that power local farmers’ livelihoods. There is also a massive flea market with everything under the sun available for sale. Pick up some furnishings for the house, peruse the fresh fruit and vegetables stands, or just wander around and take in the sights and sounds of the steam far.
