Sometimes I just need to forget about real estate. Nothing refreshes me like a change in scenery and one of my favorite quick get-aways is Canandaigua Lake. No matter how many times I visit, I still enjoy stopping by the Canandaigua City Pier and enjoying an ice cream cone and taking in the quaint, historic boat houses. This spot also offers a gorgeous view of the lake.
I also enjoy stopping by Sonnenberg Gardens and Mansion. I love exploring the ground and looking through the greenhouse. There are many unique gardens including a beautiful Japanese garden. The mansion is huge and there are tour guides to share the history.
No trip to Canandaigua is complete without visiting the New York Wine and Culinary Center. Their cooking classes are extremely popular, the restaurant features some of the finest meals and they also offer wine, beer and rum tastings.
Some of my trips to Canandaigua are simply to drive around the lake to take in the gorgeous scenery and catch glimpses of the sparking lake. Whew! So refreshing
