Hammondsport, a small village nestled between soft hills at the southern end of Keuka Lake, is close to a number of quality wineries and an excellent wine-touring base. Native son Glenn Curtiss made the world's first publicly observed, preannounced flight here—a 5,090-foot trip aboard the June Bug in 1908. Hammondsport has interesting stores, including antiques shops and local crafts purveyors, and there are several small restaurants in town and along the lake.
