Almost lost my wife in this store. If she hadn't gotten hungry she would probably have been in there another hour. If you like to see fine handicraft and artwork (from knick-knacks to floral pieces to small furniture) and you have a few bucks to spare, then you can go with my wife next time (and I'll sit down in Thayer Park). All kidding aside, the merchandise in this store was one-of-a-kind and the highest quality (and the prices were upscale too). The shop keepers like to talk and they will give you the history and pedigree of any piece you are interested in buying.
What to buy: that special gift for the in-laws
What to pay: expect to spend more than department store rates (but this is much better than department store quality)

Skaneateles has a "low risk" factor for all crimes except petty larceny which has an "average risk" factor. Petty larceny is troubling for shop owners but rarely has any affect on tourists. There are no sexual offenders registered in the area.
So all in all, you can consider this resort stop to be safe for tourists. Especially if those tourists remember to lock their car doors and put their valuables in a locked trunk. There is no sense in tempting a thief, is there?
We have been here several times and also our daughter has been and neither of us has had any problems. It is a nice quiet lake-front town as far as we tourists were concerned.

If you have the kids with you on vacation or you are a romantic in a silly mood, then go with someone special (kids or lover) to Mr. Pudder's.
This is your typical minitaure golf course where you try for a hole-in-one and are lucky if you can make it in four strokes but you always pencil in "2" on the score card. It is not a very difficult course as mini-golf goes but it is cute.
They have an ice-cream stand right next door, so if it is hot you can have a treat as reward for being such a good golfer.
$7 for golf and $3 for the ice-cream (chocolate sprinkles are best) and a lot of fun.
to get there:
687 West Genesee Street (right on US20)
