America’s Grape Country is blessed with three different environments which provide for very different things to do. Compare these three. First, Chautauqua Institute, with its pedestrian activities in an historic village on a small lake. Second, grape, fruit, and dairy farms whose life rhythms and landscapes provide a vacation “close to the land” with many “agrarian” things to do. And last, consider what there is to do if you stay on the shores of Lake Erie – a beach vacation with sand and water! One region, but three very different places to enjoy.

One of the most picturesque, elegant, and romantic ways to visit Chautauqua is riding in a horse-drawn carriage or taking a scenic horseback ride through woods and fields while enjoying nature at it's best!
Near the Chautauqua Institution and the lake, the Black Locust Stables offers beginners and "rusty" riders the opportunity to experience the fun of horse-back riding.
