I stopped by why driving through the area, and the town and lake were just beautiful. There was a large public parking lot with cheap parking just a block away from the lake. There is a nice pier to walk out on, and there is a boat tour you can catch right there. The water was exceptionally clear.

We took the boat tour of the lake. There are two tours. One is the mail boat in the summer. It goes around the whole lake, a three hour tour. The more popular one is about 45 minutes which hits the high points. One thing we learned is that this lake is home to several of the "rich and famous". Some really upscale homes on the shorefront.

We decided to take the boat ride for a day cruise on Skaneateles Lake and were not disappointed. The captain took us five miles into the lake and we got to see all the million dollar homes on the water. You can also see the wineries from a distance. The water is so clear too.
