WATKINS GLEN, NY (August 22, 2016) – Watkins Glen has another winner on its hands in a USA TODAY/10Best Readers' Choice contest! Readers have named the Finger Lakes Wine Festival best in the country! Nominees were carefully selected by an Expert Panel and then voted into winning spots by the public. All results are posted at: http://www.10best.com/awards/travel/best-wine-festival/.
This is the fourth Schuyler County attraction to be named to a 10Best list in less than a year! Earlier this month, the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel was selected as the Best Waterfront Hotel in a USA Today/10Best Readers’ Choice competition. Last June, Watkins Glen International was chosen as America’s Best NASCAR Track and last March, Watkins Glen State Park was named the 3rd Best State Park in America.
The buzz generated by these contests underscores the incredible growth of the region. Watkins Glen Area Chamber of Commerce Tourism and Marketing Manager Brittany Gibson shares, “We are so fortunate to have stellar, world-renowned attractions in our backyard. To see the buzz about our region continue to grow is fantastic. It is wonderful to see Schuyler County attractions land as nominees on these prestigious lists and pure excitement to see them land at #1!”
