Finger Lakes Welcome Center

Finger Lakes Welcome Center

Counties Served

35 Lake Front Drive
Geneva, NY 14456
United States


The Finger Lakes Welcome Center's theme, "Wine and Water," pays tribute to the region's famous vineyards and namesake lakes.

The Taste NY Market at the Welcome Center offers hot and cold lunch options such as seasonal soups and salads, sandwiches, and a kids menu, all made from fresh ingredients and products grown and produced by local farmers. The Market will also offer New York State-made wine, beer, and cider, grab-and-go snacks and gifts, including a variety of New York-made chips, trail mixes, jams and jellies, desserts, cheeses, maple syrup and more.

Wine tastings and other programming surrounding New York State's booming craft beverage industry are being planned. The tasting bar will be available to local wineries and other food and beverage producers to use for promotional events with reservations made available through New York Kitchen (formerly the New York Wine and Culinary Center), which operates the Welcome Center.

Tourism is at the core of the Welcome Center, with multiple interactive I LOVE NEW YORK kiosks positioned throughout, allowing visitors to test their knowledge of the region or design a trip itinerary.

A glass-encased community room offers stunning views of the picturesque Seneca Lake. Organizations and groups may register to use the room for not-for-profit meetings and events.
