Welcome to Geneva, N.Y.

However you make your way to Geneva, N.Y., Seneca Lake and its stunning natural beauty will quickly welcome you upon arrival. This, the largest of the Finger Lakes, is visible along highways and hillsides from all directions leading here, as well as from much of downtown. Geneva is the heart of the Finger Lakes.

Once here, you’ll find Geneva feels much like a small town where whatever you need is close at hand and everyone passes with a smile. It is, however, a vibrant and evolving city with diverse foods, languages, cultures, arts, shopping, educational opportunities and businesses. Our downtown offers something for everyone, including: a wide and growing selection of restaurants; a variety of shops and businesses; celebrations of film, theatre, music and dance; a large playground by the lake and an indoor play center.

This is what we call, “Uniquely Urban.” Experience it for yourself; there’s no other city quite like Geneva.
