Our hometown communities are just off western New York's only north-southbound four lane expressway, Interstate-390 (exits 4-10). Livingston County is also easy to get to from exits 45-47 from the New York State Thruway, making natural choices even more convenient for motor coach tours and family vacations through the Finger Lakes and Western New York.

Livingston County is within a one hour drive south of Rochester, north of Corning Glass, and east of Niagara Falls. The County is nestled in the heart of the beautiful Genesee River Valley in the Finger Lakes Region.

If celebrating our rich heritage is to your liking, we suggest Avon's Five Arch Bridge, which served to promote commerce in the early years of our County's development. You may wish to stroll along the streets in the Village of Geneseo with its friendly college town atmosphere or shop the antique shops along the Routes 5&20 trail from Caledonia to Lima. The American Red Cross was founded right here and you can visit Clara Barton Chapter Number One in Dansville where it all began. Come see and feed the fish at New York State's oldest fish hatchery in Caledonia, then smell the heavenly aroma of our famous Monks Bread baked by the Trappist Monks in the Abbey of the Genesee in Piffard.

Every year, over one million people visit Letchworth State Park to take in the breathtaking gorges, colorful foliage, and extensive trail system. The park also offers picnicking, swimming, and unique sightseeing all year long.

On the other side of Letchworth Park in historic Mount Morris, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers operates the Mount Morris Dam. Free public tours are available to groups of any size. In 1999, a state-of-the-art Visitors Center opened. Also in Mount Morris, visitors can see the home of the author of the "Pledge of Allegiance," Francis Bellamy, or tour the distinguished Mills Mansion.

Two Finger Lakes are located in Livingston County - Conesus and Hemlock Lakes have public access and are near communities that offer unique shopping and dining experiences. On Conesus Lake, two community parks are available for public use: Vitale Park at the northern tip and Long Point Park on the western shore.

There are public boat launches on both lakes. The lake communities of Hemlock, Conesus, Lakeville and Livonia offer a variety of goods and services to visitors.

The great outdoors is important to the people of Livingston County. We have 24 waterways including trout streams, ponds, lakes and the Genesee River. The state's oldest fish hatchery was founded in Caledonia by Seth Green in 1870. To this day, families come to the hatchery to see the varieties of fish and to enjoy the groomed pathways behind the main buildings.

Re-enactor

In September, thousands of outdoor enthusiasts come to the annual Hunting and Fishing Days at the NYS Department of Environmental Conversation offices in East Avon. The event features hunting, fishing, and camping demonstrations.
