Finger Lakes and Lake George recognized by Yahoo! for lakeside appeal


Yahoo! has recently named the Finger Lakes and Lake George to their list of â??Lakeside destinations that have it all.â??

The Finger Lakes were picked because of their plentiful wineries, tours, museums and many other attractions. Lake George was noted for being family-friendly with all their shops and outlets, as well as for Fort Ticonderoga and Fort William Henry.

Governor Cuomo sees this as a step in the right direction: â??All New Yorkers know the Finger Lakes and Lake George are tourism treasures, and we are proud to have their natural beauty recognized on an international scale,â?? Governor Cuomo said. â??I am focused on boosting the Stateâ??s tourism industry, which is a critical engine for economic growth. This announcement is further proof that our efforts are paying dividends, creating new jobs and highlighting all the Empire State has to offer.â??
