We had a great time hiking one of the trails and spending time at beach! Nearby is an amusement park we didn't visit and good food options.

Walking trails, beaches, swimming and winter fun includes sledding, snowshoeing, skiing and snowboarding. Fall is the best way to see it in all it's glory.

Durand Eastman Park has been a long time favorite. Based on the "Great" Lake Ontario, it is a place of beautiful scenery, world class golf, and swimming in the lake. It is a wonderful place to picnic, hike, take stellar photos of the scenery.
