Did you Know that Upstate NY is a Chocolate Lovers Dream?


If you have a sweet tooth like me, then a Chocolate Trail will be the perfect addition to your trip to Upstate NY!

We all know kids can sometimes get bored or tired on long trips, but I’ve found that my children always perk up pretty quickly when we get to visit an attraction that is dedicated to chocolate. The Chocolate Trail in Corning, NY makes this exceptionally easy with their famous self-guided chocolate trail tour. You’ll find everything chocolate related—from decadent desserts to martinis and liqueurs to aromatic spa services! With so many unique options, everyone you’re traveling with is sure to find something sweet and memorable.

In Rochester, NY, you’ll find a few boutique shops that serve decadent, homemade chocolate. One of my favorites is Hedonist Artisan Chocolates, which serves delicious creations perfect for a gift or a little treat for yourself.

Next stop in Rochester, which is a favorite for my kids, is Stever’s Candies, a fun shop in an old house on , full of sweet concoctions that look as wonderful as they taste!

Heading a little ways down to Genesee County, you’ll find the award-winning Oliver’s Candies—a delicious sweet shop and ice cream parlor all in one! It’s a must-visit for all who can’t pass up dessert, no matter what time of day it is.

Stopping somewhere along this chocolate trail is sure to make your trip to New York State even sweeter! For more attractions and family activities, explore our website!
