Why Corning’s Gaffer District in New York Is An Ideal Place to Spend A Weekend

Upstate New York’s major cities aren’t the only ones with lively culinary and cultural scenes. And when it comes to small towns in New York that surprise visitors with their excitement and variety, the city of Corning in Western New York is hard to beat. The city’s Gaffer District alone is a hidden gem, boasting more restaurants, shops, galleries, and historic places than you could take in one weekend. Still, we recommend you give it a shot.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

If you’re looking to spend less time in the city and more time enjoying nature outside the city, head to Erwin Hollow State Forest just north of Corning.
