Sightseeing Cruise on Skaneateles Lake

Skaneateles Lake or “Long Lake” is one of the highest Finger Lakes, sitting 863 ft. above sea level. The lake is 16 miles long and 1 mile wide. In the early 1800s, many settlers were attracted to the land surrounding Skaneateles Lake because they were able to use the lake outlet as a power source for water mills and other types of early industry. Enjoy this 50 minute sightseeing cruise as it takes you approximately 3 miles down the East side of the lake to return on the West side where you’ll see many stately homes, old and new, The Sherwood Inn, originally a stagecoach stop, and steep and wooded hill sides at the southern end.

Thousand Islands Winery

Thousand Islands Winery® is the largest farm winery in Northern New York State and is located along the majestic St. Lawrence River on a historic forty acre farmstead established in 1836. The primary grape varieties being planted in the Thousand Islands Region include Frontenac, Frontenac Gris, Marquette, and La Crescent which were developed by the University of Minnesota. The development of these cold-hardy grapes is the very reason we now enjoy the benefits of the ever-expanding Northern New York wine region.

Your tour guide will even point out the exact location of the international boundary line between the U.S. and Canada so be ready to look!

Boldt Castle

This 120-room Rhineland-style castle was built at the turn of the 20th century and is the 1000 Islands region’s top attraction. Boldt Castle is home to one of the saddest love stories ever told.

The von Trapp family’s journey is a remarkable story. In 1938, just before World War II, the Baron and the Baroness von Trapp left all their possessions and estate near Salzburg. With nine children and one on the way, they fled Austria and were granted asylum in this country. Arriving with only $4.00, they settled in Philadelphia, and through their music, turned a family hobby into a profession as the Trapp Family Singers. They soon bought a small farmhouse in Stowe, Vermont, because the landscape reminded them of home. Here, the family lived peacefully and continued to travel the world singing. Maria wrote an autobiography that inspired the play and movie, The Sound of Music, and her story became an American legend. What was once a modest farm grew into a world-renowned resort, and is now overseen by Johannes, the youngest of the singing von Trapp children, and his family.

Herkimer Home

Situated overlooking the Mohawk River, this Georgian-style mansion was home to General Nicholas Herkimer. Construction of his residence on the colonial frontier was completed around 1764. General Herkimer’s place in history was assured in 1777 when he assembled 800 militiamen, supported by 60 allied Oneida warriors, and marched to defend Ft. Stanwix against a British siege. Considered to be a significant turning point in the Revolutionary War, the Battle of Oriskany, fought on August 6, 1777, has been described as one of the bloodiest battles of the war. Herkimer’s estate was home to many over the years, including his family, enslaved people who helped run the estate, soldiers encamped during the war, and neighbors seeking refuge from the fighting in the Mohawk Valley. During the 1800’s the property saw much change as the first the Erie Canal, and later the railroad, cut across it. Today the site can easily be reached from the highway, river or Canalway Trail. Visitors are invited to tour the mansion and view the visitor center exhibits; and also explore the grounds to discover General Herkimer’s final resting place, a recreated kitchen garden, remnants of an Erie Canal lock, and scenic views of the Mohawk River.

Haunted Happenings

Salem’s connection to Halloween begins with the tragic events that unfolded during the Salem Witch Trials. The 19 innocent victims who lost their lives in 1692 were not witches, they were only so accused due to Puritan beliefs of the time. The Salem Witch Trials were later revived with Arthur Miller’s 1953 work, The Crucible, and again in 1992 during the tercentenary of the events and the unveiling of the Salem Witch Trials Memorial. By 1982, the City has planned the first Salem Haunted Happenings Festival during Halloween weekend. The festival was an effort to provide family-friendly events for guests who were interested in visiting the “Witch City.” Following the first festival’s success with about 50,000 guests in attendance, the annual event has continued to grow each season, drawing everyone from families, couples, history buffs, and Halloween enthusiasts from all over the world.

Salem Witch Museum

The Salem Witch Museum is a museum in Salem, MA about the Witch Trials of 1692. The museum is based on the actual documents of the trials.  A multi-sensory presentation including 13 life-sized stage settings that recreates the horrible and truthful events known as the Salem Witch Trials.

Springfield Museums

Located in the heart of downtown Springfield, Massachusetts, the Springfield Museums offer access to five world-class museums, including the Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum and the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden. The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum, the newest museum on the Quadrangle, is devoted to Springfield native Theodor Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss! The first floor features interactive exhibits exploring Dr. Seuss’s Springfield roots and providing opportunities to experiment with new sounds and vocabulary, play rhyming games, and invent stories–all in line with Geisel’s revolutionary role in changing how we learn to read. The second floor, curated by Geisel’s two step daughters and great nephew, recreates Geisel’s studio and living room (with the furniture and art materials he actually used) and features never before publicly displayed art, family photographs and letters, and the original Geisel Grove sign which used to hang in Forest Park. You can even find Theophrastus, the toy stuffed dog Ted Geisel’s mother gave to him when he was a boy in Springfield.

Quabbin Reservoir

Today, along with the Wachusett Reservoir, it is the primary water supply for Boston, some 65 miles to the east.

After all, these ghost towns are underwater. The foundations remain, but their former residents have long since settled elsewhere.
