After a revelatory trip to Grand Teton, Yellowstone, and Glacier National Parks in 2006, outdoor enthusiasts Laura and Alan Falk cast off the shackles of software careers to begin new lives as tour guides and planners. The pair created standard tours to introduce travelers to the area's local wineries, gorges, waterfalls, and historic towns, as well as custom tours that let natives and visitors design their own experiences based on personal preferences and hunches about the location of buried treasure. Past custom tours have included birthday scavenger hunts, bachelorette weekends, and private birthday celebrations with wine tastings. Experience! The Finger Lakes draws on more than 30 years of intimate local knowledge to create lasting memories in a thriving area replete with natural beauty, rich culture, and a captivating history.

The facility supplies players with rental or purchasable gear to use while working their way through the wooded field's buildings or fire rounds on a seven-person speedball field. Around Halloween, Ithaca Paintball and Recreation transforms its acreage into XScream, where gun-toting guests eliminate zombie-impersonating actors and levitating Renaissance portraits from its haunted woods.

Casual Elegance is how I like to describe Atwater. We are serious about our wine, but not snobbish about it.

We will cater the tasting to your likes.
