Chautauqua County

I Love Ny

Villages and Towns

Anchored by the Cities of Jamestown and Dunkirk, Chautauqua County is comprised of a mixture of Victorian, lakeside and Amish communities. Each is filled with a character and charm all its own. Play on the white sandy beaches of Sunset Bay or the powder packed slopes near Findley Lake. Enjoy the bustling summer sounds of Bemus Point and fine cuisine in Mayville. The Concord grape belt known as America's Grape Country runs through several Victorian-era villages along Lake Erie from Silver Creek to Ripley and into Pennsylvania. Stop for a café break in the college town of Fredonia or find antique treasures in Westfield. The road to Amish country begins in Cherry Creek where a bed and breakfast innkeeper and shop owners will help you find the way.
