Several portside communties are perfect for launching onto Lake Ontario, and a large swath of the Erie Canal offers great riverbank fishing. The agriculture industry fueled by the canal has made the county a family-fun destination with U-pick farms and Ag tours. Chimney Bluffs, the Montezuma Wetlands Complex and Huckleberry Swamp make this one of the state’s most naturally beautiful stops.
