This is a driving range and minigolf and go-kart sort of place. You see a lot of these out on major highways in rural areas of New York State.
These places can be good family fun for a couple hours during your vacation.
The driving range is not only fun with targets to hit but is great exercise. They have added a putting green also for those who need more frustrations.
The minigolf is pretty easy but the kids love it.
The gokarts go around in a fairly small oval but at some pretty good speeds. Bumping is allowed; in fact it is encouraged.
All three activities for two hours for $10 per person (with coupon).
We have a constant on-going "battle" in the family on pizza night. I love Pontillos, most of the rest of the family loves Marks. Sometimes I win but not often enough.
Mark's is an okay pizza, don't get me wrong. It just isn't as good as Pontillos as far as I am concerned. Marks has great choice of toppings that the kids love and you can get side orders of cheese sticks and wings. And the price is very reasonable (actually, the sheets are cheaper than Pontillos).
My wife chooses Marks because of the coupons.
When we visit my brother-in-law we call ahead and stop here to pick up something to take with us to his house. They can have a pizza and wings ready in thirty minutes.
90% of the business is call-in and pickup or deliver.
They also have a full menu of sandwiches and salads you can ask about when you call up. (see phone number below)
(the restaurant has Williamson as its mailing address but physically it is in East Williamson)
This is a glorified hotdog stand with counter service and stools and wooden tables/chairs.
It doesn't look like much from the outside and it isn't anything fancy on the inside. It can get hot as heck inside the place during late July and August but they do have some outdoor picnic tables.
What makes it a popular stop for locals?:
1) it has great tasting hamburgers;
2) it has delicious ice cream selections;
3) it is the only food business for miles on route 104.
Most of the people who come here are like our family: their grandfather came here, their father came here and they take their kids here.... it's a tradition. The hamburgers are so tasty that people keep coming back, year after year.
It is a bit of a drive from Rochester but several times during the summer we find ourselves saying "let's take a zip out to Orbaker's" and we go and have an ice cream and soda. On our drives back from Fair Haven, Orbaker's is a great pit stop for burger and fries.
If you are in the area for vacation or just driving along this stretch of route 104 in the summer, you owe it to yourself to stop in for a bite.
The Williamson-Sodus Airport provides access to the area for small planes (commercial and personal). It also provides an aerial service for viewing and photographing the local countryside. Small jets can be chartered for flights in and out of this airport.
The field has a 4000-foot and a 1200-foot runway.
Call the phone number below for details on using the airfield or for flight charters.
