When you stay at a Canandaigua vacation rental, July is typically our warmest and driest month. Occasionally, we get brief afternoon thunderstorms coming across the lake – spectacular to watch safely from inside the cottage.
In the rare event that it rains during your vacation, here are some nearby indoor activities your family might enjoy:
Canandaigua Theaters Located a mile from the cottage, this movie theater has several screens with something always playing.
Strong Museum of Play This museum is 35 miles north, in Rochester, New York. Children will enjoy the many on-hands exhibits. Adults will feel nostalgic seeing the toys they grew up with.
Eastview Mall GlowGolf I haven’t tried this yet but for putt-putt golf fans, this would be a lot of fun. Eastview Mall is one of the last thriving malls left in the country. You could spend a half day just looking at all the stores.
