Welcome to the Gateway of Chautauqua County and New York State. Why not make Ripley the first stop of many in New York? On the nationally designated scenic byway - The Seaway Trail - which follows Route 5 and the lake through the township as the premier recreational trail in the country.
Along this shoreline in Ripley is some of the best grape-growing soil in the state. Travel U.S. Route 20 along the antique lover's corridor and stop in Ripley to browse through some of our quaint shops. Or, take a drive through the southern part of the township that maintains its rural way of life, with agriculture, grapes and dairy farming as the principal land use. "Come home to Ripley," say the folks here!
