Quality beach time with the family in Sodus

The quaint town of Sodus lies along the shores of Lake Ontario about as far up New York state as is possible to go. Its name originates from the native word for silvery water – assorodus. If you're looking for a quiet little spot to spend beach time with your family, or some much needed peace and quiet, booking up a Sodus vacation rental might be just what you're looking for. You can spend your days stretched out on the sand, grab some water sports equipment to hit the lake, or dive into one of the local restaurants for exquisite food.

Things to do

Over 200 years of history in Sodus

Away from the beach, there's not much in the way of attractions near your Sodus vacation rental, it's more about beach life. That said, there are some historical gems, most notably the Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum, a landmark structure and an interesting place to discover the region's past. If you're in town during summer, you can swing by for one of the free Sunday afternoon concerts. More of Sodus' 200-year-old history can be seen in the murals that adorn its walls. One things for sure, you're going to eat well in Sodus' thriving restaurant scene.

Activities

Build castles in the sand in Sodus

Most of the recreational activities near your Sodus vacation rental can be found along Sodus Point Beach Park. If the sun shines, grabbing a spot on the long golden beach becomes mighty appealing. Spend days stretched out on the sand working on your tan or, if you've brought the kids, see who can build the biggest sandcastle. If the midday heat gets too much, you could always splash around in the cold waters. Away from the beach, you can hop aboard one of the cruise boats to take an exciting family adventure across Lake Ontario.

Weather

The allure of the beach in Sodus

The best time to stay in a Sodus vacation rental is during the summertime high, when the beach and the cool waters of Lake Ontario are at their most alluring. If you catch it right, you could be basking in temperatures that hover around the low 80s, cooled by a breeze rolling off the water. That said, it is also the busiest and most expensive time to visit. If you don't mind swapping to cooler weather in exchange for a drop in rental prices and an emptier beach, try spring or even fall, though the chilly lake is probably not as appealing.

Natural features

Swamps and wetlands in Sodus

Nature lovers are in luck. Just a stone's throw away from your Sodus vacation rental is the 50,000-acre Montezuma Wetlands Complex, one of the largest in north-east US. It's part of the Atlantic Flyway and a stopping off and breeding area for a large number of migrating birds. Down along the 80-acre Huckleberry Swap, you can walk along the network of raised wooden boardwalks which will lead you through the wetlands and forests passing a plethora of wildlife along the way. It's open from dawn until dusk and what you spot very much depends on the time of day that you visit.
