Spend a restful day at Forman Park.
This splendid little park right on Lake Ontario is not heavily used because it is so far from the major population centers. That means it takes a while to get here but also it means that there are seldom any crowds.
You can rent one of the several pavillions or the park house. You can just throw down a blanket and claim a spot for the afternoon. You can bring the family and a picnic basket and use one of the open-grill stands and picnic tables and spend the day enjoying the clean air, the sunshine and the small beach.
see this website (http://www.co.wayne.ny.us/departments/bldggnds/bldggnds.htm) for rental pricing info.
Most of the waterfront is large boulders but there is one small section of sand area which is not authorized for swimming but you can get your feet wet here.
The park has playground equipment and they allow you to bring yard games (bacciball, horseshoes, badminton, etc.). They have several public restrooms and water fountains.
We have one of our family picnics here every year and the only problems we have is that it can quickly get chilly in early summer and mid-fall so you may want to bring a jacket even if the sun is shining brightly (10 degree temperature drop within 100 yards of the lake).
Visit the Pultneyville Marina adjacent to the Yacht Club on Mill Street.
You can launch your boat or rent a canoe.
You can sit on the docks and watch the sailboats glide in and out of Salmon Creek.
You can fish from the western shore while standing under a huge oak tree for shade.
Most of these activites aren't going to cost you much except some time and in return you get some peace and quiet.
This place opened in 2005 in some of the old warehouses along the east side of Salmon Creek. There are an art retail store, an old-fashioned ice cream parlor and a restaurant in the complex they have named The Landing.
The art store is called The Artisans Loft and it offers upscale art, jewelry, tables, stain-glass, home made textiles and sculptures at fairly expensive prices. See the website below for the latest exhibits.
The restaurant is called Relish and it offers caual dining for lunch and dinner. See the website below for the menu.
The ice cream shop is called Scoop Shop and offers hard and soft pack ice creams in various flavors. Great on a warm day when a land breeze is blowing out into the lake.
The middle of July is the time to celebrate the Pultneyville Festival.
It lasts from 10am-6pm for each weekend day. It starts with a morning parade followed by a car show and walking tours of the historic sites in town. There is a flea market, an antique show, arts and crafts on exhibit and for sale. Food vendors on both days will serve finger foods and beverages to keep up your strength. The Museum and gift shop will be open and highlighting items from the historical society and souveniers. The local Opera Company will enact one of the broadway plays at the Gates Hall.

"Come to Pultneyville and learn about the interesting history surrounding this once bustling port. ... When you take the walking tour of Pultneyville you will learn about many historic homes and buildings."
Friends from where I used to work live here year around and love it. Quiet, peaceful, good weather in summer and no crime. The whole area along the lake front has a "very low" crime risk rating. The only prevelant crime are a few cottage break-ins of summer residences during the off-seasons. Otherwise it is very safe here.
Come and enjoy, but do it in the summer.... it is mighty cold and snowy in the winter.
