Chautauqua is a town and lake resort community in Chautauqua County, New York, United States. Start off your visit on the 30th (Sun): explore and take pictures at Chautauqua Institution, then see the interesting displays at Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum, then explore the different monuments and memorials at Lake View Cemetery, and finally enjoy the sea views from Celoron Lighthouse. Here are some ideas for day two: explore the striking landscape at Panama Rocks Scenic Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Matthias Catholic Church, then get advice or help at Patterson Library, then look for gifts at Vinewood Acres Sugar Shack, and finally visit a coastal fixture at Barcelona Lighthouse State Park.
