Let’s talk about travel to Chautauqua Lake, NY!

This place, located in Western, NY, and is kind of a hidden gem.

While back in the day it was a summer playground to many of the nation’s wealthy, it is still a popular place for locals and other people in the area. The lake itself is stunning, and there are plenty of things to do including getting out on the lake, visiting Lake Erie Wine Country, and enjoying a stay at a nice hotel along the shore.

So in this podcast episode, we’re talking about where to stay and explore near Chautauqua Lake!
