Cayuga Lake, the longest and second deepest of the Finger Lakes, has provided residents and visitors throughout the centuries with water transportation connection to the world beyond; food; and recreation in the form of pleasure boating, swimming or quiet contemplation along its shores. To celebrate this treasured body of freshwater, leaders of the communities around the lake came together to showcase the historic, natural and cultural assets that tell the story of the significance of Cayuga Lake to our past, present, and future.
Supported by two New York State sponsored programs, Scenic Byways and Local Waterfront Revitalization, we share the stories through land and water experiences of Cayuga Lake. Either way you travel, ENJOY THE RIDE!
