Grape Country

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.

Stay, Sleep, Eat and Play

Places to Stay
