A Comedy & Cultural Hot Spot

With a feel-good blend of culture, comedy and outdoor fun, picturesque Chautauqua County is a four-season vacation destination offering something for all ages. Visitors flock to the area to enjoy the pleasures of its five lakes, including the Lake Erie shoreline and the pristine waters of Chautauqua Lake. 

Long celebrated as the home of the venerable Chautauqua Institution, known for its world-class arts and cultural programs, the recent opening of the National Comedy Center has skyrocketed the area’s appeal.  The cutting-edge museum offers lots of laughs with more than 50 immersive exhibits taking visitors on an interactive journey through comedy history. The National Comedy Center is fittingly located near Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum in nearby Jamestown, the legendary comedian's hometown.  The region’s unique microclimate, caused by Lake Erie, creates more than 200 average inches of lake effect snowfall, making Chautauqua County a winter paradise for alpine and cross-country skiers.
