New York small town

Chautauqua is a small town in western New York
Good spot for a slow summer holiday

We at Travelindicator are a group of well traveled people. All continents except for Antartica have been covered quite extensively. Yet for some reason it's always the small towns that manage to capture our imaginations, more so than the big cities or the world-famous sights. And top of the bill for us are American small towns. Chautauqua in western New York state is a most perfect example of why these places are so lovely.

Situated at a thin and long lake with the same name, Chautauqua (County) is the type of place people travel to from elsewhere in the state for a slow summer holiday. Playing catch next to the lake under a blue sky, maybe having a swim in it or sailing on it, going for a hike through the hills and vineyards surrounding it. And at the end of the day of course light up a barbecue... Can life be any better? The town is a combination of leafy neighbourhoods and a lakefront including marina which offers great views over the lake.

Chautauqua is also known for being the birthplace of the Chautauqua Institution (in 1875), which still organizes educational activities for many tens of thousands of people each summer. [Review by travelindicator]
