Muranda Cheese Company

Reviewed By 251ceh - Port Dover, Canada

We loved Muranda Cheese because they let you taste over a dozen cheeses and we all liked something different, proving that tastes are very subjective and there will always be something to somebody's liking. The woman was knowledgeable and friendly and cheeses were affordable. You can also look in the barn window and see the cows. Great stop!

Reviewed By Trish E - Rochester, New York, United States

The place was mobbed, lots of drunks. The decor was cute but a bit of a theme park feel and the wines were too sweet for us. Two of the places have nothing but sweet fortified wines and one has "real" wine but the bartender was rude. We wanted to try certain ones but there were so many people he was just pouring at random and not even telling us what they were. He actually poured one wine on top of another in my glass and then said I was out of tastes even though I didn't get to taste it. Most of the places you had to elbow your way up to the bar. Felt like they were more into selling trinkets than making quality wines or experiences.

We have visited Waterloo Outlets over the years and noticed recently that there are more empty storefronts than in the past. Clothing is definitely the focus of this mall. We were there for 3 hours and found some deals.

Women's Rights National Historical Park

Women's Rights National Historical Park tells the story of the first Women's Rights Convention held in Seneca Falls, NY on July 19-20,1848.

Reviewed By Asoka B G - South Pasadena, California

We were here on our drive from Buffalo to Adirondak on Fall Foliage viewing tour. It was mid morning no much crowd, could find parking behind the building lot.
Relatively larger exhibition and information area that highlights a lot.
Since location is away from busy / noisy city it had additional advantage to achieve the desired task in peace.
At the end of tour I needed to help a physically disabled family member to a family rest room, but they did not have that facility.

Reviewed By NCLoggerheads - High Point, NC

Traveling through Upstate New York, we were determined to visit at least one Finger Lakes winery before heading home. As we headed back to the Buffalo airport, we settled in Geneva, New York, with our sights on Ravines Wine Cellers. You can sample four very nice wines for $3.We took home bottles of the Dry Riesling (an award winner) and the Cabernet Franc. Have fun!

del Lago Resort & Casino

The hottest slots, the most-thrilling table games, marquee entertainers and a 4-star resort-style hotel—it’s excitement at a whole new level! We’re del Lago. In Italy, it means “of the lakes.” But around here, it means so much more. It’s a way of life, a ready-for-anything attitude that’s a spicy mix of Old World charm and homegrown hospitality. It’s adventure and excitement, best friends and unforgettable times, big-name entertainment and small-town values. And it’s a commitment to excellence that drives everything we do. MUST BE 21 OR OLDER. FOR HELP WITH PROBLEM GAMBLING CALL 877.8.HOPENY OR TEXT HOPENY (467369).

Reviewed By Bobbie7 - Sarasota, Florida

Thank goodness there are still people who want to experience nature and that this spot is available. We arrived late afternoon and an employee was willing to share the eagle spotting, and give us tips on our drive through the terrain. Off we went with perfect late afternoon lighting, birds and flowers everywhere with some other special visual treats. It is peaceful just remembering how nice it was.

Seneca Lake State Park

Reviewed By Rita C - Ventnor City, New Jersey

This park was clean, beautiful and fun if you were walking or jogging. We thought we would be able to ride our bikes on a path there. Most of the path was a street which needed much improvement to ride on. We did enjoy our brief visit there.

Reviewed By Jean L

I am very new to kayaking and thanks to Justin at Fuzzy Guppies, it was WONDERFUL! The service was super nice and attentive and the equipment was picked to match my skill level, helping me to paddle with confidence! We chose to paddle the canal located right at the shop, which was a perfect choice-beautiful scenery paired with calm water. Launching and docking were made a breeze by the staff. I will definitely be back-Thanks for the great time!!

It's A Wonderful Life Museum

Reviewed By Baker-Mayy - Centereach, New York

It's a Wonderful Life has been my absolute favorite movie since childhood.. so over the years I've researched Bedford Falls.. where it was, etc... and for years, after finding out that Seneca Falls is the inspiration for the town in the movie, I've wanted to come here.. for the museum..for the Festival.. for the bridge. Well, two out of three ain't bad. I hope to come back for the festival. it was worth it to come for the museum.. and then stay in Seneca Falls for a while. there is lots to see and some nice restaurants too for a good lunch!

The museum made me so happy! Starting with the man who was running the place, what a lovely gentleman... the exact person you want to meet while visiting a museum like this one. He seemed to completely understand my dramatic entrance and over-reaction to be in the entry way of the museum! He had such enthusiasm to welcome us.. and genuinely loved our enthusiasm to be there.

The museum mostly had images and quotes from Frank Capra, Jimmy Stewart, Donna Reed and the rest of the cast and crew.. not a lot of original set pieces or actual pieces from the movie but that didn't really bother me.. it was so interesting to me to read the insider info about the movie, etc.. it had all the info on the inspiration for the movie, the book it was based on, the inspiration for George Bailey.. and some small items from the Oscars.

I loved just being there.. just sharing the love for the movie with the other visitors.. quoting the movie.. clicking the lighter and saying "I wish I had a million dollars... hot dog". all silly things .. but awesome all the same!

I would recommend this place for any fan..
