Overlooking the sparkling blue-green waters of the eponymous lake, Skaneateles remains a picturesque and serene village. Situated west of Syracuse among the forested northern shores of the lake, the hamlet has been attracting visitors for more than two centuries with its quaint charm and the natural beauty of its surroundings. Notable for its historic role in anti-slavery movements before the Civil War, today the affluent village boasts a waterfront downtown area, which evokes images of classic New England. The small commercial core features a blend of mid-19th and early 20th century buildings housing boutiques, art galleries, and a broad range of quality restaurants. Things to do in Skaneateles include cycling, boating, hiking, hunting, and wine tasting. The summer music festival and the fairytale-like Dickens Christmas are also the reasons for many Skaneateles holidays.
