Avon is a small town - with small town appeal. There are all sorts of craft type places where you can buy pottery or take a workshop to learn how to make your own pottery. The town has a quaint bar and a number of very tasty restaurants. You can even get a $6.00 breakfast at the Village Restaurant. The people are friendly and welcoming. It is close to Conesus Lake, one of New York State's 'Finger Lakes'. It's a short 20 minute drive to Rochester, NY; 3rd largest city in New York State.
