    Visitor Testimonials

    “I just completed the survey. However, I wanted to let you know personally that my trip to Corning/Watkins Glen with my six-year-old daughter was one of the best parts of our stay in the Finger Lakes region. My daughter considers the glass-blowing demonstration the best experience of the trip, topping even the Maid of the Mist ride at Niagara Falls! I was overwhelmed by the extraordinary effort given to accommodating tourists...lockers in the downtown area! (We took advantage of them). And everyone was so helpful with directions and suggestions. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and for making our trip so memorable.”
    Paula, N. Hollywood, CA

    “I just wanted to tell you that we had a wonderful time visiting your city recently. My family and I traveled for Nashville, Tennessee to Corning. The hotel staff and every retail person with whom we did business treated us very well in a friendly yet professional manner. People in the southern states have always said that northerners were unfriendly and cold, but your city certainly disproves that theory. Walking down Market Street was a delightful experience, in part because of the wide variety of shops but mostly because of the friendly people on the street. Not once did I see a person on a cell phone rushing to get somewhere and therefore people spoke to each other instead. My children experienced simple things that they have missed so far in their young lives like climbing a tree and being able to run through a field. We truly appreciate the effort you have put into maintaining the atmosphere of a small town while still offering so much to your visitors. I look forward to my next visit.”
    Barbara, Nashville, TN

    “I spent last weekend in your lovely city for the annual New York State Optometric Association meeting. I was very impressed by the cleanliness, the welcome signs in the merchant windows, the friendliness of everyone, and the charm of downtown. Our local member, Dr Dozack, did a wonderful job of coordinating tours and entertainment.”
    Sincerely, Larry
