Things to see and do in Fairport, NY

1. Create memories by painting with exceptional artist

Discover the artist in you while visiting Fairport, NY. Make sure to carry with you quality paints if you are to paint. You only need to pay around $25 for a 2-hour class and $35 for a 3-hour class of painting. The best part is that you get to carry your masterpiece back at home after the end of the painting class.

2. Soak in some vitamin D while cruising on the Erie Canal

You can do lots of activities while cruising in the phenomenal Erie Canal. You can rent a canoe or a boat and cruise around on your own.

Or you can get aboard by cruising with the Colonial Belle tour boat and learn some fascinating facts about the history of the Erie canal through the commentary. Just make sure you put on your sunscreen and enjoy the breeze.

3. Travel back to time by visiting the Fairport NY historical Museum

The free Fairport historical museum is home to the historical society, and still, up to date, it is run by the Perinton historical society. The museum has readily accessible local history exhibits for view for all visitors.

It also has an ambient garden full of native flowers and strategically positioned benches, where you can calmly savor the experience after touring this classical museum.

4. Make a showstopper swing while in the Fairport public golf course

If you are a golf enthusiast or you just want to experience a new thrill through golfing, then Fairport, NY, is the place to explore your new or already found golfing talent. Make sure to visit either of the 2 public golf courses.

However, I would recommend that you make your showstopper golf swing at the Eagle Vale golf course as it has more professional facilities than the Island Valley golf course. The Eagle Vale has 18 holes of championship-level golf and a golf school. It also has a clubhouse that has a pro shop in it and a fully functional and exceptionally managed restaurant.

5. Suit up for Fairport’s thrilling festivals

Don’t miss out on the Fairport Canal Days, which is usually a 3-day festival that is full of diversified and culturally rich music, cuisines, and craft booths. This festival only takes place on the first weekend of June every year.

If you are also a true and passionate motorhead (car enthusiast), then make sure that you don’t miss out on the car cruise festival held annually in Fairport, NY. And just in case you miss out on the Fairport Canal Days or the car cruise festival, then worry not, as Fairport always holds its Scarecrow festival on the month of October each year.
