Travel and Leisure, a travel magazine based in New York City, recently compiled a list of the best travel destinations for 2022 — and the Finger Lakes region made the cut.
The new year was slated to be a year where people returned to traveling the world after two years of dealing with Covid-19 lockdowns and restrictions.
During the shutdowns, many properties in the hospitality industry invested in revocation projects that revamped rooms and outdoor spaces while adding new amenities.
Despite COVID variants and testing regulations still in place for travelers, the curated list of hot spots focused on destinations that invested in such upgrades.
The Finger Lakes region was featured on the list due to their bolstered wellness and culinary offerings, making a name for themselves in the luxury travel realm.
Establishments mentioned include the Inns of Aurora, a holistic wellness facility comprised of five historic mansions. The Inns sit on 350 acres overlooking Cayuga Lake, highlighted by hydrotherapy pools and meditation areas.
