Finger Lakes, New York
It’s delightfully possible to spend four days here doing nothing but eating and drinking. Last year, the Finger Lakes produced more than 40,000 tons of grapes, making it the largest wine-producing region east of California. Two relatively new self-guided trails are dedicated to cheese, featuring 15 artisan cheesemakers, and sweets, complete with 17 stops for honey, jam, and cookies made with local ingredients. The 87-mile Cayuga Lake Scenic Byway, which loops around one of the region’s 11 “fingers,” hits wineries, the National Women’s Hall of Fame, and waterfall hikes; the Corning Museum of Glass is home to the largest collection of glass in the world.
