The Finger Lakes Blog noted that Hammondsport, NY, was recently named the coolest small town in America according to Budget Travel. Hammondsport is about 50 minutes southwest of Geneva. To get there, you drive along the scenic Keuka Lake. Not a bad a journey. While there is only about 700 people who actually live in Hammondsport, it’s got a vibrant and quaint little downtown. There are a handful of restaurants, a hippie bakery, an art gallery/store and the requisite upstate NY antique store.
