    My family has been coming here since before I was born. It is now my 30th summer. I LOVE this place. It's a home away from home. There's always something to do, for all age groups. Just arriving and going through the gate takes a huge weight off your shoulders. The grounds are beautiful, the air is crisp and clean. This place is a Haven.

    Have loved this place for years. Week one left us with mixed thoughts. Enjoyed worship and organ, good young speakers, dancers, and our favorite symphony and pianist. However, Jay Leno's jokes were inappropriate for youth, causing 11 year old to be taken home. Problems came with sound system in the amphitheater, especially for the handicapped in scooters, now relegated to the back platform, who must abide unthinking and rude people who talk beside and behind them during performances and speakers.

    The beauty of this cultural village under a canopy of eastern hardwood trees, with beautiful architecture, gardens and more opportunities to enjoy its symphony, ballet,opera, theater, and world class lectures. And when you need other forms of relaxation, golf, tennis, baseball, and swimming in the gorgeous, glacier created lake Chautauqua also made for sailing, kayaking and fishing.
