There are wineries, farm markets and antique stores nearby, and the whole area is filled with marinas, fishing charters, quaint shops and restaurants. The village of Sodus Point sits lakeside and has a permanent population of only 1,200, but becomes a bustling resort town in the summertime. One of the main attractions on Sodus Bay is the Old Sodus Point Lighthouse and Maritime Museum, which features Sunday concerts, tours, a special 4th of July Celebration, picnics and other events.

Sodus Bay Weather & Climate

The Finger Lakes Region is bounded by Lake Ontario to the north and the state of Pennsylvania to the south. Precipitation in the region ranges from less than 36 inches to approximately 40 inches of rain and snowmelt. The lakes act as a giant "heat sink" that retain the warm temperatures of summer in their waters, slowly releasing it in the fall and early winter. This helps moderate temperatures along the shoreline. Therefore, communities right along the lakeshores will be warmer in winter and cooler in the summer compared to areas further away from the lakes. This also accounts for the successful vineyards in the Finger Lakes region. As the lake gives out heat in the late fall and early winter, the vineyards have an extended growing season. In addition, the weather in spring heats up more slowly than other areas of the state.
