Splash into Summer with These Finger Lakes Activities
Summer is finally here to stay at Belhurst Castle, a one-of-a-kind romantic getaway located in New York’s jaw-dropping Finger Lakes. The Finger Lakes region is known for its vineyards, waterfalls, hiking trails, and fall foliage, but several water-based adventures will help you beat the heat this summer. Our luxurious waterfront castle is a short drive from all of the top-rated Finger Lakes activities, such as kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and windsurfing. Whether you’re hoping to board a relaxing cruise ship, paddle along Canandaigua Lake, or splash inside a nearby waterpark, you’ll quickly discover the allure of a midsummer water-filled escape to the Finger Lakes!
For a fun, refreshing way to spend a summer afternoon, couples, groups, and families can check out Roseland Waterpark in nearby Canandaigua. The water park features an exciting wave pool, a sizable raft ride that can accommodate up to four people, an “Adventure River,” and several water slides. Kids can play in the Splash Factory, which is labeled as “the playground of their dreams” with small waterslides, water cannons, and a giant bucket that dumps gallons of water every minute.
