Visitors who have been fortunate enough to visit New Yorkís Hudson River Valley usually agree on the charming scenery. It lacks the intimidation factor of large-scale places like the Rockies or the Grand Canyon. The Hudson is impressive, but you can see across it; the foothills of the Catskills on the western side of the river are beautiful, but not menacing. All in all, itís a landscape thatís much easier to process.
Another thing about this area is that youíre rarely all that far from anything else. Take Accord as an example. Viewed on the map, itís a tiny dot of a place. However, if youíre thinking of exploring Rochester, Accord could be the perfect spot for a home base, especially if you want to have a vacation rental home thatís a few miles off the tourist track.
So if you choose to stay in Accord, what can you do? These attractions are within easy driving distance:
For film and theatre buffs: Little Theatre Film Society, showing independent American and foreign films; Geva Theatre Center, performing live regional theatre and improv.
For amateur historians: 1812 Bicentennial Peace Garden Trail, which takes in historical sites and former battlegrounds; in Rochester, the Mount Hope Cultural District
For beer and wine aficionados: Several wineries, vineyards, and wine trails (as an example, see Canandaigua Wine Trail); Genesee Brewing Company, one of the oldest breweries in the US.
We think youíll agree that investigating the possibilities for a vacation rental in Accord or nearby is a good idea!
