Finger Lakes area is ranked first
Jim Stinson • Staff writer • August 7, 2009
The Finger Lakes region has been named the top lakeside retreat in the world by the editors of Shermans Travel, beating out contenders such as Lake Como in Italy and Lake Mead in Nevada.
Lake Kawaguchi in Japan was No. 2 and Lake Como was No. 3.
Shermans Travel LLC, a Web site founded in 2002, is a New York City review and rating agency.
The 11 Finger Lakes "are interspersed by pastoral landscapes of quaint waterfront villages and scenic vistas of gushing waterfalls and rocky gorges," the editors wrote of the 14-county region.
The award marks an effort by Finger Lakes officials to get the word out about the region. "To the rest of the world, it's still largely a secret," said Scott Butler, director of marketing for the Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance.
The alliance has spent the past year and a half talking to the media about the region's assets, and the world is taking notice, said Cindy Kimble, president of the Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance.
But what do the Finger Lakes have that makes them competitive with lakes in Italy and Japan?
For one, the 11 lakes were carved by glaciers, and the resulting beauty and 1,000 regional waterfalls attract hundreds of thousands of people annually, said Butler.
With the addition of dozens of wineries, tourists can visit the large region without feeling they are visiting an attractions-centered site, he said.
Shermans Travel is run by Jim Sherman, a former corporate manager at Time Inc., according to the company's Web site.
The company says its editors screen hundreds of travel deals each week, and publishes its picks in an e-newsletter that reaches more than 3.5 million subscribers weekly.
