Tags Summer Stage

Tag's opened it's doors on April 15th 1992. The Budweiser Summer Stage followed in 1994 with no more than a large field and a small stage. The desire was to fill a 'niche', provide national headline entertainment in an outdoor setting on a consistent basis. Apparently we have filled that 'niche', we have expanded each year since. The Summer Stage has become a nationally recognized concert venue and has hosted Artists such as: The Steve Miller Band, Boston, Train, Keith Urban, Ted Nugent, The Beach Boys, BB King, Barenaked Ladies, Hootie and the Blowfish, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Willie Nelson, Martina McBride, Huey Lewis, STYX, ZZ Top and many many others.

Saw a show here. Nice open outdoor venue. Was a pain to get a drink. Had to buy a ticket then go take ticket to get drink. Neat place though.

Reviewed By Midlandpark3 - Close to New York

We had no idea about this place, thought it had something to do with Norman Rockwell. Not. A wonderful museum of Western and Indigenous American art. Beautifully restored building with architecture that fits perfectly with the exhibits. Very good explanation of what we were seeing in each room and it was great seeing some real classics of Western art while also seeing lots of new and beautiful things. Gift shop was also quite nice. Staff were helpful and friendly. Not a huge museum -- plan on about an hour plus gift shop -- but a really good one.

Antique Revival

Reviewed By Tonihoney - Silver Spring, Maryland

This shop is a real find if you love antiques & pretty things. I visited the store with two out-of-town antique loving couples who were amazed at the quality and fair prices. Everything is arranged beautifully in cozy little room type areas. It looks like most of the goods are from the Victorian era. Along with furniture you can find China, glassware, pictures, even a section with ladies hats & accessories, jewelry, soaps, lotions & pretty knick knacks. We were thrilled to find that Antique Revival had a sale going on with 50% off everything! We didn't purchase any furniture but we all loaded up with stocking stuffer gifts for Christmas!

Harris Hill Soaring Center

Reviewed By Barbara R - Erie, Pennsylvania

This was an awesome experience for us. Since this area has hills/mountains, it is perfect for gliders. There was a competition going on with the gliders being tethered to small airplanes. There was probably 40 gliders taking off one right after the other, what a sight! A fellow in training who I talked to there told us that the gliders brand new can cost up to $100,000! The newer ones are made of fiberglass. Worth going to see.

Wings Of Eagles Discovery Center

Reviewed By 828TJA - Everett, Washington

While it is true that many airplane museums have more aircraft, this is a discovery (educational) center not a museum. I learned things here.

It was easy to spend two hours here, about half of it looking at the timeline on the back wall depicting important events in aviation through the years.

A restaurant inside offers a variety of food including several kinds of tasty soup, all at reasonable prices. It appeared that locals come here for lunch.

The staff is friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Karen.

Note: The discovery center has very short hours, only from 11 to 3, Tuesday through Saturday. I wish it were open longer as I had to return the following day to see it all.

Look for it on the west side of the airport, with airplanes parked around it. (They can be viewed even when the building is closed.)

Willowcreek Golf Club

Reviewed By Barbara H - Corning, New York

We live very near Willowcreek and have played here as members for several years since our retirement. The long-time owner sold the course this year (2016). He kept the grounds in very good shape, and consistently made capital improvements. Last year a new groundskeeper sharpened the fairway cuts, upgraded a number of the the tee boxes and improved the sand traps; dead trees were removed and new ones planted. The new owner is investing quite a bit on improving the club house and amenities. A good public course only gets better ... We recommend Willowcreek to anyone who lives in the area and encourage visitors to the area to try it as well. Situated in the Chemung River valley, the course is fairly flat and easy to walk but it is reasonably challenging with a number of lay-up holes. The 27-hole layout also allows more options; i.e., it is easy to "walk on" since at least nine holes are always open, even when there is a tournament.
