In the Valley

The scenic Genesee River Valley is spectacular during every season of the year. You will detect a decidedly English influence in the vicinity of Geneseo. Early residents expressed their affection for English country style by introducing the trappings of that life—gracious manor houses, equestrian parades in traditional dress, and fox hunts—into our part of New York State.

Besides being rich in history, The Genesee Valley is a great place for camping, hiking, golfing, fishing, swimming, canoeing, sailing, cross-country skiing, and biking.


On the Water

Nearby Conesus Lake is just one of many attractions that offer outdoor adventure, fun, and relaxation. For members of Geneseo's Crew Club, its sparkling waters afford the perfect setting for workouts and competitions.
