December 2016 35 Even though there is plenty to occupy guests on-site, the Inn on the Lake acts as a great bouncing-off point for day trips around the Finger Lakes region. Within a few hours, guests can be sipping along any of the region's famous wine trails, shopping at the Waterloo Premium Outlets or exploring the world of aviation at the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum in Hammondsport, New York. The region is home to some phenomenal outdoor spaces where each season offers new opportunities to get out and explore. Visitors can snow ski in winter, fly-fish in spring, sail or speed through the warm waters on a boat during summer, or go leaf peeping through the foliage of fall. The Inn on the Lake shares a driveway with the New York Wine and Culinary Center (NYWCC), which is a haven for shopping and sampling the finest New York-sourced products and ingredients. Several of the Inn on the Lake's meeting and event groups take advan- tage of the proximity and set up team-building events at the NYWCC, or simply go for a tasting of New York wines, beers and spirits that they have available. Sutter's Marina can be found next door to the inn and is a popular spot for boat rentals for active guests. Main Street Canandaigua satisfies the shoppers in the group with its full lineup of quaint shops and boutiques. Off-Site Day Trips Hallways and public spaces are decorated with homey, comfortable furniture. Centrally located and insanely affordable, Nebraska's capital has the venue selection, entertainment value, small-town hospitality, and big-city amenities that planners and attendees come home raving about. The status quo doesn't get to be extraordinary. But you do. CARPE DIEM CONFERENCE DE Plan for more at lincoln.org/meet .
