Things To Do

We're so excited to have all of our family and friends see the place we call home! Here are a few of our favorite spots in the area to check out while you're in town.
Taughannock Falls State Park

Taughannock Falls State Park

1740 Taughannock Boulevard, Trumansburg, NY 14886
, (607) 387-6739

Not quite a hike, more like a lovely walk (1.5 mile out-and-back; mostly flat, no elevation). Beautiful scenery along the way, and an awesome waterfall at the end. Good for families (or anyone!). The falls are located on the west side of Cayuga lake. We love making a day in that area, and following the hike with lunch at Glenwood Pines (no frills place for a great burger, a beer, and lawn games) or The Finger Lakes Cider House (yummy local/organic food and dry hard ciders that will make you a believer). You can also swing by Bet the Farm Winery or Myer Farm Distillers for wine/spirits tastings!

Sans Dumplings

Sans Dumplings

1030 Larzelere Road, Penn Yan, NY 14527
, (315) 530-2604

Handmade dumplings, rice and salad--the best bite of food we've found in the Finger Lakes! Imelda (who's Chinese name is San San) takes immense pride in the quality of her ingredients, and the perfection of her process. Call to place your order in advance, or better yet, book a tasting at Kemmeter Winery, operated by her husband/winemaker Johannes Reinhardt (the dumpling shop is located on the property). ***Note, Sans Dumplings is only open Thurs-Sat, 11:30am-5:30pm For dessert head to The Spotted Duck for a flight of duck egg ice cream. All are located on the west side of Seneca Lake, which also features many wineries and breweries to explore!

Toni's Diner

Toni's Diner

3631 Tichenor Road, Hector, NY 14841
, (607) 546-8066

As some of you may know, Ryan and I love a good diner! Located about 30 min south of us, Toni's has some of the best homemade, no-frills food we've tasted in The Finger Lakes. The owner Toni will be there to greet and seat you, and her husband (we're pretty sure it's her husband :)) is the passionate cook behind the stove, and truly takes pride in his work. Freshly baked bread & jam, two types of house made hot sauce, perfectly crispy and well-seasoned has browns, fluffy pancakes, and one of the best omelettes we've ever had are a few of our favorite things (but you really can't go wrong). It's a small place, and you'll wait a while for the food to arrive, but it's well worth it!

Water Street Cafe

Water Street Cafe

467 South Exchange Street, Geneva, NY 14456
, (315) 789-2560

Several times a week Ryan heads into Geneva to sit at the counter at Water Street Cafe and have breakfast with his friends--including several elderly locals who consider this spot their second home, and the wait staff who know Ryan by name...and to get the hash browns on the griddle as soon as he arrives so they'll be extra crispy. This sense of small-town community is one of the things we love most about living up here. Stop by for the house made sourdough, extensive menu of diner classics, and tell Theresa Ryan Green sent you ;)

Three Brothers Wineries and Estates

Three Brothers Wineries and Estates

623 Lerch Road, Geneva, NY 14456

Three Brothers is a sprawling property just down the road from our wedding venue, complete with three wineries, a brewery and café. It's a great place to stop by for a drink and hang out before the ceremony begins.

A stunning Belgian-inspired craft brewery and kitchen, located in a beautifully restored historic barn and farm grounds.

12 Linden Street, Geneva, NY 14456

Probably the most legit cocktails in town, plus some good bites to go along with them.

Another local restaurant we like. New American-ish food, and great cocktails!

Ports Cafe

Ports Cafe

4432 West Lake Road, Geneva, NY 14456

Finger Lakes Welcome Center

Finger Lakes Welcome Center

35 Lake Front Drive, Geneva, NY 14456

A beautiful place to grab a glass of local beer/wine, some snacks, and sit and enjoy them by the water. There's also a playground onsite.

Watershed Brewing Company

Watershed Brewing Company

3543 East Lake Road, Geneva, NY 14456

A great new brewery that just opened down the street from our wedding venue. Good place to stop by for a drink and some lawn games before the ceremony (or any time)!
