  • I always enjoy going to the Finger Lake Wine Festival at Watkins Glen every yea. Such a good time.
  • I love The Glen. I camp at the vintage race every September. Super laid back atmosphere and you can get up close and personal with the cars and drivers. I highly recommend it to any fan of sports car racing
  • Legendary facility, gorgeous grounds. I went there for my first ever NASCAR race this summer and it was worth the 11 hour round-trip drive. The Glen Dog was awesome too. WORTH CHECKING OUT!
  • Been going to the track for 9 years now to see the NASCAR race. A great family environment (in family camping section) and to hang out with friends. Lots of things to do around the area. Especially going to Corning Glass which is one of my favorite things to do. Always a nice place to go for a vacation.
  • Watched a grand prix race because I happened to be in town at that time and figured out that it's best watched on TV as you only see cars for about 15 seconds out of about 2 minutes it takes them to complete the loop. The track and place itself seem great for those you are into car races.
