I like Christmas at the Finger Lakes Region in upstate NY. Check out the following towns:
1. Seneca Falls
- the town is said to have inspired the fictitious town Bedford Falls from the classic movie "It's a Wonderful Life". There's an It's a Wonderful Life Festival
on December 13, 14 and 15.
- Charles Dickens Christmas
. The celebration begins the day after Thanksgiving through December 23, runs every Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 pm.
3. Liverpool (New York)
- Lights on the Lake
is a two-mile-long drive-through show featuring Land of Oz, fantasy forests, arches, holiday displays and more. Open nightly from 5 to 10 pm from November 14 to January 5.
The good news is you can visit all three towns while you're at the Finger Lakes. These towns are close to the Keuka Lake wine trail
and Seneca Lake wine trail and Cayuga Lake wine trail. In addition, Niagara Falls
, Canada is less than 150 miles from Skaneateles and Seneca Falls.
