Destination guide

Faint heart never won fair vacation at Sylvan Beach

If you like life lively, a Sylvan Beach vacation rental is for you. Stretched out against Oneida Lake, right on the edge of Vienna town, it's all about the summer buzz here, with scores of restaurants and bars to keep you out of trouble. Swim, boat, or kayak out on the lake. Grip the safety bar like your life depends on it at the amusement park, shop until your wallet aches, or try and bankroll the vacation with a game at the casino. Come winter, the lake sets solid and the snow sports get started. What's not to love about Sylvan Beach?

Things to do

White knuckles and blackjack hustles

You can't miss the big attraction round here. Sylvan Beach Amusement Park is the sort of joyous place you used to go when you were a kid. It features faster rides like a roller-coaster, and fierce contraptions that ramp up the G-force, plus teacups and other gentler options for the little ones. They even do after-hours ghost tours. If all this leaves the teacup-riders hungry for more excursions, you could take a trip out to Fort Rickey Zoo, while grown-ups might fancy chancing their luck at one of the area's casinos.


A real peach of a beach

The clue is in the name here. Head down to the lakeside and you'll find all the water activities your little heart desires. There's swimming and kayaking, plus a marina and fishing trips, with walleye and bass being the favored quarry. Every Tuesday night the motorcycles descend for 'bikes at the beach', and come winter, the air hums with a different sort of engine, as snowmobiles take to the flat surface of the frozen lake. For a quieter life, there are hiking trails in neighboring Verona Beach State Park, which become ski trails later in the year.


Drill a hole and haul out a fishy

As if further proof were needed that Sylvan Beach is heaven on earth, rather than hell, it makes a point of freezing over in winter. The lake surface becomes a giant, solid sheet, to the delight of ice fishermen and snowmobilers. All the same, summer is far and away the most popular time for a Sylvan beach vacation rental. The sun's hot, the water's cool, the bars are buzzing, and there's a full program of events including concerts down at the water's edge. Slap on some sunscreen and join the fun.

Natural features

In fair Verona (Beach State Park), where we lay our scene

Sylvan Beach makes up part of the town of Vienna, and is set on the eastern shore of Oneida Lake. For some, the characters on the beach will be all the wildlife they'll need from their Sylvan Beach vacation rental. But nature-lovers are spoiled too. Covering around 80 square miles, Oneida is the largest lake in New York State, and more than 1,700 acres of the lakeside just near Sylvan Beach are given over to Verona Beach State Park. The hiking and skiing trails of these wetlands provide great opportunities for spotting birds, fish, and deer.
