Pratt's Falls Park

Reviewed By AineFlorida - Florida

A great little park for a stroll through the woods. The waterfall is a pleasant surprise. Take a picnic lunch, jog, walk, take photographs and enjoy nature. Plenty of parking and restroom facilities. You can find some shade in the woods on a sunny summer day. Trails are user friendly with places to stop and rest.

Our almost 3 year old has been here twice and she loves how close she can get to all the animals. Feeding and petting animals is a big hit and even the bears and large cats are close enough to get a great feel for their size and power.

I went here on a warm November day, with my niece and nephews. The trails are nice and there are some beautiful views of Glacier Lake. If you take the trail that has the stairs on it be prepared for sore thighs the next day!

Manlius Art Cinema

Reviewed By M M - Arlington, Virginia

The fact that the proprietor introduces each film to the assembled audience says a lot about the personal touch not found anywhere else. In addition, his discriminating taste in booking movies can be trusted--the films are unfailingly high quality and thought-provoking. This 99-year-old venue isn't luxurious, but it's comfortable enough--and a bargain for such a quality experience.

The Stickley Museum

Reviewed By Roger2101 - Vienna, Virginia

My wife and I were recently here along with a tour of the Stickley factory. This museum is just the right size to summarize relevant history and includes numerous pieces of furniture which depict evolution of the brand. The museum curator was very friendly and helpful. If in the area and interested, this is an easy and enjoyable stop. The museum was very easy to access. A nice extra to our rural NY trip.

Owera Vineyards

Reviewed By AineFlorida - Florida

The location of this winery is beautiful. The landscape is lush, green and very inviting. You can see the rows and rows of the vines. Outside sitting is a must just to take in the beautiful view. Very quiet and relaxing inside and outside. The inside is absolutely stunning. The bar is one of a kind and so unusual. Everything is new and fresh looking. Staff is friendly and informative. Wine is displayed and there is plenty of it. Pizza is probably the best around. Service is great, fast and plentiful. Stopped for lunch on a Wednesday afternoon and not at all crowded. A must visit and it is off the beaten path. They probably need a little more advertising but all the locals know where to find it.

We have done a couple of tours of things related to the Erie Canal and always enjoyed them. We were in the Syracuse area and figured this would be an interesting thing to do. First the positive, it is a very cheap museum, $5 suggested donation. They have a full-size model of a boat that would have used the canal and you can go on it and walk around. The emphasis is on the weigh house (station, can't remember exactly what it is called). It is what weighed the boats on the canal. The back part of the museum in the weigh station and you get to see how it works and what it would have looked like. They also have an interactive game that let you play the part of the station master. Ok, now the problems. The weigh house game worked but there were several others including one that looked really interesting that weren't working. The museum has a ton of stuff but the order to look at it seems disjointed. It might have just been me but half the time I felt I was following a chronology, this is the order things were built. The other part of the time I felt it was geography, start in Albany and work your way across to Buffalo. It just got a little confusing, again it might have been how we went through. Also the second floor was set up for postcards which were interesting but it didn't seem like an efficient use of the space. Anyway it was definitely worth the visit.
