    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We were both born in this town of 15,000 people but have lived other places and just moved back for peace and friendliness that we find is common in this area. Geneva is easy to get around by bike and we can help you explore the wider area which is comprised of 5 finger lakes (long but narrow lakes,,up to 1 mile wide), many wineries, pumpkin and apple farms, other agriculture and historic towns, including Seneca Falls where historic meetings were conducted helping lead to the legislation giving women the right to vote in America.

    Here is a recent article about us as a wine growing region.

    We are between two larger cities, Rochester and Syracuse which are common places to fly into when you are coming to this area. We can provide transport to and from the airport.

    Along with helping you explore the Finger Lakes we can also provide you with insights about traveling elsewhere also. We are 2.5 hours from Canada and 6.5 hours from NYC or Boston, easily accessible by bus or a quick plane ride.

    Please write if you have any other questions for us.
