The author clearly thought that the Finger Lakes were amazing based off of what they wrote:
Where have the Finger Lakes been all my life? Known for its amazing wines and precious scenery, the Finger Lakes region of New York definitely deserves more clout. It’s been one of the most underrated travel destinations in the US for too long, and it’s unclear why given all that it has to offer."
For those that don't remember, The Finger Lakes are home to 11 finger-shaped lakes, some of which are over 30 miles long. Cayuga Lake is the longest of the Finger Lakes, followed by Seneca Lake. Keuka and Skaneateles Lakes are also part of the Finger Lakes.
