Wayne County, New York has plenty to brag about.  Although just 50 miles from the Rochester metropolitan area, the county is rural to its core.  It his home to many cute villages and hamlets, as well as a couple of smaller cities.  The county is loaded with spectacular natural vistas everywhere you look.

Here, you will find great restaurants, breweries and wineries, odd roadside attractions and lots of historic sites, many of them going back to the founding of the Mormon religion in this county (Church of the Latter Day Saints).  At the north end you will find a fantastic, large public beach along the blue waters of Lake Ontario for family fun (and a great old lighthouse with a museum in it!).

It is here, along the northern shore of Wayne County that you will see a natural wonder unlike anywhere else in the northeast.  Chimney Bluffs State Park has many eerie clay formations along the shore, each of which rises up hundreds of feet in the air.  Where did they come from?  What the heck are they?  In this gallery you will find a link to them.  Totally amazing (and not a little bit strange).

So please don't overlook Wayne County when you hit the road this summer.  Road Warriors in Upstate New York will be well advised to stop for a bit at this beautiful and historic gem of a county!
