This town/campus is special. The setting, architecture, amenities, and landscaping are worth a visit, which will cost around $20 for half a day. On Sunday afternoon, you can stroll the grounds for free. We bought tickets to a show at the amphitheater which enabled us to enter the grounds just before 4 PM. We went to a lecture, had a drink at the hotel, and dinner at the cafeteria-style restaurant before attending the show ("The Capitol Steps". We enjoyed the entire experience.

Midway State Park

Our 2016 Pricing, Operational Calendar and other information is available on our webpage and our our facebook page. Please note that on all normal operating days, the rides close from 3-3:30 pm; the arcade and concessions will remain open during this time. Located on the shores of beautiful Chautauqua Lake, Midway State Park is a family treasure. Originally established in 1898 as a trolley park, Midway State Park is one of the oldest continually operating amusement parks in the nation. The first owners of the park constructed playing fields, tennis courts, bath houses and a dance hall to entice customers to ride the trolley on weekends. In 1915, a new building was constructed with a kitchen, a large dining room and space for dancing and roller skating. Today, this building is home to a museum, gift shop, concession stands and other facilities. Midway State Park continues to offer the same family friendly atmosphere that visitors have come to love. Patrons can take a nostalgic ride on the vintage carousel, play a game of mini golf, take a spin on the tilt-a whirl, ride the go-karts and bumper boats or watch their children enjoy themselves on the many kiddie rides. And, while some may prefer to relax while enjoying an old fashioned candy apple or cotton candy, others can test their skills at classic midway games. Several picnic shelters are available for family reunions and company picnics. Accessible by the waters of Chautauqua Lake, Midway also is a great place for fishing and free docking is offered for day visitors. Household pets only, must be caged or on a leash no more than 6 feet and have proof of rabies inoculation. No pets in public buildings or in the amusement area.

Our nephews loved Midway State Park - the rides are classics and everything is designed for the younger child. Midway is very clean and all the rides appear well maintained and in excellent shape. Recommend!

Panama Rocks Scenic Park

Explore a half-mile long ridge of 60-foot high rock forming crevices, passageways, and caves hidden in an ancient forest! Located just 15 minutes from Chautauqua Lake, Panama Rocks is one of the top-rated attractions in Chautauqua County based on independent reviews on TripAdvisor. The Panama Rocks formations are surrounded by a one mile long hiking trail, but most guests enjoy going off of the main trail to explore! Visitors spend anywhere from one hour to the entire day having fun and exploring the park. Picnic tables are available. The trail is relatively easy to hike (Class 1) and guests of all ages enjoy it, but there are roots, rocks, and uneven ground; it is still a hiking trail! Plan your trip to explore one of the most fun and popular "things to do" in Western New York today!

Such a find! Just a beautiful area to climb rock formations and nature discoveries. There's an actual mile long path to walk without doing any climbing but we never made it onto the path. We were too busy climbing! Very friendly atmosphere. Everyone helped everyone! So much rich color.......I can only imagine what it looks like in autumn.

Southern Tier Brewing Company

Reviewed By Crystal A - Cleveland, Ohio, United States

We finally made the trip to Southern Tier and we were not disappointed! We went to The Empty Pint at 4:45 on a Friday and it was already packed. There were no seats on the patio but we were able to snag one just inside the doors so we still were able to catch the breeze.

The beers are excellent and they have a lot to choose from. I highly recommend getting a flight so you can sample as much as possible. You will need to leave your driver's license to do a flight because people have stolen a lot of the metal holders. They have cold 6 packs to go of the small bottles and definitely bring your growler for a fill too.

The menu is limited but everything we had was delicious. We tried the pastrami & swiss, and while it was a little fatty, the flavor rocked. We also had the classic meatloaf sandwich - it was heart and delicious. Our favorite item was the buffalo chicken meatballs. If we had more room I would have liked to try the pork rinds, one of the grilled cheese sandwiches and the veggie joe.

The patio is dog friendly. Make sure you get there early if you want a spot for you and your furry friend. We arrived at 4:45 on a Friday and there were no empty tables. You could bring a lawn chair to be safe and don't forget a water bowl for your dog. They have live bands outside too.

Chautauqua Point Golf Club

Reviewed By DOUGANDPOLLY - GRAND ISLAND

this is a simply terrific little nine-hole golf course, well-maintained, with a view of Lake Chautauqua from almost every hole... signature hole is the eighth, a preciptious drop of some 50 yards into what looks, at first, like an island in the lake... nice personnel, reasonable prices, lacking only in adequate post-round food and drink... that is, there is some, but quite mundane

Lucille Ball Memorial Park

Reviewed By Robert C - Garden City Beach, South Carolina

Access to Chautauqua Lake is limited. This is a public access on the lower lake. At one time it was the site of an amusement park with rail access which was a hub of activity early in the last century. It is a historic local site. Today it is a park that remembers local icon Lucy. There is fishing access and picnic sites in addition to Lucy statue popular for photos. Free simple attraction , nice lunch spot.

my son has a boat and loves to come here to eat or just hang out and have a drink. meanwhile, their children who are under 11 are able to fish off the dock and they love it here. you can be served either in your boat, inside or outside. the food is okay but the facilities and view are more the reason for coming.
