    Canandaigua, N.Y.

    This city, encompassing the downtown area, is surrounded by the town of the same name, home to 10,000 people. With 19th-century Queen Anne homes, antiques shops and boutiques, it’s a place with postcard appeal. Shoppers can visit 140 businesses downtown. Tourist attractions and festivals entertain residents and provide seasonal jobs. Pristine Canandaigua Lake draws boaters from the region. The city rates high on clean-air measures.

    Because of the Finger Lakes’ robust wine industry, foodies have made this their enclave. Lovers of casual fare flock to Wegman’s; it offers a covered patio, live music, chef-prepared meals and antique car shows.

    Residents also appreciate four seasons of play. Hiking trails run past waterfalls. From spring through fall there are regional wine festivals. Winter is busy, with an annual Christkindl Market. Averaging 66 inches of snow a year, the area is a paradise for Alpine and Nordic skiers, as well as snowboarders.

    Health care includes the award-winning University of Rochester Thompson Health, with a 113-bed hospital. It’s affiliated with the top-ranked Strong Hospital, 30 minutes away. The YMCA has reduced rates for older adults and activities ranging from aquatics to PiYo.

    Median housing price: $191,600
    Vibe: Four-season fun
    Freebies that count: Check out the pioneer-kitchen exhibit at the Ontario County Historical Museum.
    Best way to spend $10: Sample local vintages at New York Kitchen, the city’s award-winning wine and culinary center.
    Urban getaway: Rochester, 25 miles
