Make memories with McCoy Getaways in the Finger Lakes, a must see destination. Our first attraction will be the backdrop of Mother Natures best work, Letchworth State Park. The river that carved a gorge through the middle the park sometimes 550ft deep, has helped it earn its nickname, The Grand Canyon of the East. We will take a step back in time and soak in the history with our included lunch Belhurst Castle. Our visit to the only unaltered and complete Tiffany Chapel known to exist, the Willard Memorial Chapel. With a private organist performance is a one-of-a-kind experience. Sonnenberg Gardens, a Cayuga Lake Cruise with wine and cheese and the Corning Museum of Glass all complement this amazing tour.
