Experienced in the fields of business development and communications, Michael Schamis pursues in his free time a wide range of interests, including travel. Among the many places Michael Schamis enjoys traveling is the Finger Lakes region of New York.
Located in the western part of New York State, the Finger Lakes region is a popular destination for people who want to relax and get away from it all. Known particularly for its wineries, the region gives visitors the option of following established wine-tour routes or simply visiting whichever wineries interest them. Many of the wineries themselves also serve delicious foods prepared with locally grown ingredients.
Outside of the attractions of good wine and food, the Finger Lakes region offers a beautiful outdoor setting to explore. The lakes themselves allow for plenty of recreational opportunities, and waterfalls and gorges in the region make for impressive displays of natural beauty. With more than 25 state parks in the area, there are plenty of options for visitors who want to get closer to nature and enjoy many types of outdoor recreation, including hiking and boating.
