Get around

You will have trouble getting around the county without a car.


The most pleasant things to see in this county are the landscape and the wonder of the tremendous Lake Erie. Lake Chautauqua - much longer than it is wide, like the Finger Lakes, but not considered a finger lake - is also beautiful, but generally too cold to swim in even in the summer.


If you like Buffalo wings, you will find them in many bars and restaurants.
