Popular Recreational Attractions and Community Events You Won't Want to Miss
On Friday nights in the summer, park your boat and throw a blanket on the lawn in front of the Gazebo in Clift Park for a live band performance. How about a polo game on Sunday? Skaneateles historic ambiance still attracts tourists for their boat excursions, inns, restaurants and spas, as well as the lovely boutiques and specialty shops.
Skaneateles is home to the annual Antique & Classic Boat Show in July, and you won’t want to miss the “Old-Fashioned Dickens Christmas” with actors in period-costumes, performing on the streets. And there's so much more. Parks with playgrounds, jogging paths, basketball and tennis courts - even ice skating. Sidewalks festooned with flowers and dotted with park benches. A scenic pier for strolling, fishing and people-watching. A fascinating museum. A cozy public library with a walk-in gallery of works by the late Skaneateles artist John Barrow.
Take a hot-air balloon ride for breathtaking views of Skaneateles and the surrounding area...or get a closeup view on a bicycle. For a view from the lake, there’s dinner cruises, or take a ride on the mail boat. Take a step back in time and visit a water-powered mill that has been in continuous operation since 1823. There’s just so much to see and enjoy here.
