  • Drive to Seneca Lake - This is a short run north to the Finger Lakes with lunch at a winery. The roads will offer great driving with good views of the countryside and the lakes. When we return to Corning there will be time to relax, stroll and shop the historic commercial district. (approximately 10 AM to 3 PM)
  • Culture Tour - Departing at about 9 AM drive directly to the Glenn Curtiss Museum (  and tour this fascinating collection for about 1.5 hours then depart for lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch depart for Finger Lakes Boating Museum ( for about 1 hour visit. After the boating museum make the roughly half hour drive on back roads to the Radisson with perhaps a stop at Keuka Creamery for ice cream. (approximately 9 AM to 2 PM).
