Orleans County


Nestled between Niagara County to the west and Monroe to the east, is the lake plains region of Orleans County with 24 miles of Lake Ontario shoreline. The Erie Canal winds its way through three of the four villages and the remaining landscape is populated primarily by working farms, orchards and vineyards amidst unique cobblestone and sandstone architecture.

Orleans County offers everything from the simplest of pleasures such as picking and sampling our farm fresh fare, to the sense of exhilaration while landing a trophy sized King Salmon on the open waters of Lake Ontario. Catch all the fun at the Ultimate Fishing Town of Point Breeze, where you will find year-round World-Class fisheries on Lake Ontario and its tributaries that are teeming with colossal trout and salmon. “Hook up” with an experienced fishing charter or guide service to maximize your expectations for the most enjoyable day on the water. Our natural assets and waterways can be explored while cycling, hiking, sailing or cruising. You’ll discover a sense of historical significance illustrated in our architectural achievements of the 19th century such as the Erie Canal and the extraordinary buildings being preserved and re-purposed for modern times including whimsical shops, restaurants, galleries and museums.
