Charcoal Corral and Silver Lake Drive-In Theatre

Reviewed By Iamhere123 - Warsaw, New York

Great place to go in the summer. Arrive early for a game of miniature golf. After treat yourself to a great Pizza for dinner then hit the Ice Cream Parlor for a dessert, all in one place.
There is also a restaurant where you can order off a menu and have a sit down meal. Plan it right and you can see a movie right after dinner at the Drive In theater.

Mount Morris Dam

Reviewed By gingersthomas - Gouverneur, New York

This is a great tour with extremely knowledgeable guides. It operates twice in weekends and once each weekday, bit is limited to 30 persons per tour so get there early. This is a military installation so photos are permitted outside and on the bridge of the dam, however neither cameras nor cell use are permitted inside. There is a 160 ft elevator ride down into the Dam and you walk through drift-like tunnels. May not be the best for those with claustrophobia issues. There is also a long walk down and back up a steep cement ramp to get to the Dam and back. This could be physically challenging. There is plenty of parking and a play ground, a great place to picnic as well. There is a small walk through Peace Corps and Dam display onsite. No gift shop. No charge for this activity.

The Wadsworth Homestead

Two brothers moved to the frontier in 1790 to risk their inheritance on land, This elegant manor house was built by James Wadsworth in 1804, and remains in Wadsworth hands to this day. Original furnishings and ephemera are part of the unique appeal of this venue, listed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1972, that is open to the public for scheduled tours.

I would highly recommend this tour, it is not often that you get a private tour which is given by a family member of the historic home. Will was extremely knowledgeable and included lots of detail and interesting facts not only about the home but also about how his family came to Geneseo and the adorable stories about the house relocation. This tour is a highly recommended Geneseo Gem ! Call them to book a tour !

Be sure to eat in one of the local restaurants. Good food right in the village.

This is an amazing place to visit. It has been on our to see list for a couple years and we finally made it. Well worth it. Even my teenagers enjoyed it! When we first arrived Joe greeted us at our car with a friendly hello and told us about the treehouses. He let us go explore and then came and checked on us. He answered our questions and pushed my daughter on the amazing swing. His 2 daughters came and cheerfully talked to us and played with us in the trees. Although it is free, we were happy to put some dollars in the donation box they have at the entrance. Thanks Joe and family!

The National Warplane Museum at Geneseo is a small organization that has worked tirelessly to restore, maintain and present vintage aircraft for display and tours. There are additional aircraft in various stages of restoration as well!

Each Summer they host an airshow which is always a good value. I recommend attending if you are at all in the area.

My sons and I make a trip here at least once a year.

The Livingston County Historical Society’s Museum houses 200 years of stories and collections from towns in Livingston County.

Reviewed By farmhand2014 - Rochester, New York

One visit was insufficient to see and comprehend the extent of local historical object and exhibits. It is also small enough to provide personal service. The museum also offers frequent talks and lectures. We recently enjoyed a talk by an American Indian of Algonquian heritage.
