Chautauqua - Allegheny

Chautauqua , New York, 14757

The basics

Lying off the main driving route between New York City and Niagara Falls, Chautauqua-Allegheny remains little-explored by out-of-state travelers, though its charming scenery, white picket fence-towns, historic covered bridges, and pristine lakes have made it a popular vacation destination for New Yorkers. For active travelers, there are countless activities on offer, from boating on Lake Erie and rafting on the Allegheny River to hiking, biking, and horseback riding at Allegany State Park.

For less physically demanding pursuits, admire large-scale sculptures in the beautiful setting of Griffis Sculpture Park, follow the self-guided Amish trail, or delve into 20th-century American pop culture at the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum. Located Jamestown, Lucille Ball’s hometown, this museum focuses on the life and work of the I Love Lucy stars.
