Looks like the heat wave of last week is over, but it’s still warm and sunny.

Good news if you live in Cayuga County. You can take a trip to the beaches of Emerson Park or if you’re looking for a more contained place for fun in the sun, don’t forget about Casey Park for a nice outing and a dip in the pool.

Thinking more of a country experience? Then perhaps the beaches at Long Point State Park are more to your liking. And, of course, Moravia’s Fillmore Glen with it’s famous cow shed is always a pleasure. You can enjoy a quiet hike, picnic areas or a swim in the stream fed pool. How cool is that!

And last, but certainly not least, the white, sandy beaches of Fair Haven State Park on Lake Ontario is a perfect spot to spend the day. But, don’t forget your sun screen.

So, if you're new to our area or a longtime resident, Cayuga has a lot to offer. From the serene Finger Lakes, local hiking areas, to one of our awesome Great Lakes, there is something for everyone.

As always, if a quiet day at home is what you desire, be sure to check out our listings to find your own piece of paradise.
