Last week, we asked readers:
What is your favorite thing to do with out-of-town guests visiting the CNY area?
Here are some of your answers:
"Take them to Dinosaur BBQ, Heids, show off the Finger Lakes and Thousand Islands, take them to downtown festivals.
"Since our out-of-town guests are here for only a day or two, we spend time catching up. We have nice dinners, breakfasts, go shopping and have long walks and chit chatting. When the grandchildren come, we have taken them to the MOST and to different school playgrounds to play.
Barbara Western, Fayetteville
"Downtown festivals, and, of course, Wegman's...it's like visiting the Grand Canyon or the Greek Acropolis!
Anthony Anello, DeWitt
"Take them to Green Lakes Statae Park, walk around the lakes and end up on the veranda of the golf club having a cool drink and maybe some lunch or dinner ...
Janice Abdo-Rott, Manlius
"... I do like to take guests to Wegmans DeWitt. Also I think our region is so beautiful; my favorites include Green Lakes, Skaneateles, Beaver Lake, Highland Forest and the zoo. Also the Everson is good, especially if the weather isn't nice.
Kathy Hughes, Manlius
"We like to take visitors to the MOST and, depending on the weather, Green Lakes. We like to take them to our favorite Italian restaurants. And of course, a stop at Wegmans is a must.
Mel Rubenstein, DeWitt
"We love to take our guests to Green Lakes State Park, sail on Cazenovia Lake, or go to the MOST.

"Zoo, Armory Square, Dinosaur BBQ, Clinton Square, festivals/skating, Downtown Arts & Crafts Festival, parade and Tipp Hill on St. Patty's Day, NYS Fair, Regional Market ... depends on the season!
Barbara Sutton, Dewitt
"My favorite thing is taking a group of out-of-town visitors through the Matilda Joslyn Gage Center (open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Monday) and watch them marvel at a house that contains so much history: from Oz to the Underground Railroad, with women's rights and the Haudenosaunee and religious freedom as well.
