We are in a New York State of mind this month, friends! Lush landscapes, picture-perfect scenery, and breathtaking views are all around you in the Empire State – especially when you head to Finger Lakes wine country. We have to hand it to region (pun intended!) for supplying both travel and wine lovers with a variety of activities and grape varieties to choose from, and for providing all photography enthusiasts with plenty of spectacular landscapes and scenes to shoot Instagram-worthy images of.
