Skaneateles on $500 a Day

Homer is the town before Skaneateles and there’s a Damascus in the area too and of course Ithaca and Rome. Homer's one of those old towns with the massive Victorian red brick buildings.There are lots of villages of this ilk especially in Vermont and Massachusetts where now defunct rellcs of the Industrial Age are turned into museums like MASS MoCA. Vergennes, Vermont, for example, boasts a grand old opera house that’s been brought back into service with a modern repertoire of family friendly concerts and events. If you take Route 20 West from Homer, you’ll arrive in the resort town of Skaneateles. It’s lovely and quaint, but a little like Jykll and Hyde, Skaneateles is what happens when a fixer upper is turned into a mansion. It even has a luxury hotel in which the gardens are modeled on Giverny. If you drift down to East Genesee, the Main Street, in search of something simple, you’re likely to hit upon a law office with an auspicious and intimidating facade.Take 321 North a block or two and you'll know you're back in the real world of normal hardworking people when you encounter the local CVS across the street from a Tops supermarket.
