Travel Blogger Explores Orleans County, NY

Recently travel blogger, Malerie Yolen-Cohen, visited Orleans County, NY to highlight town culture and romantic getaways. Malerie writes for Getaway Mavens about unique romantic getaways couples can do in one or two nights. She covers under-the-radar attractions, including historical museums with a good story, soft adventure (hiking), agricultural tours, wineries, breweries, culinary, and upscale inns.

On her first day in Orleans County, she checked into Bent's Opera House Boutique Hotel and was captured by the beauty and history of the Opera House. She was then given a walking tour of the downtown Medina businesses and picked up many goodies along the tour! From finding a beautiful dress from Denmark at A Lily & A Sparrow to a steal of a deal on a necklace from the Herbalty Cottage, Malerie did not leave disappointed after her small business excursion. Her first day in Orleans County ended with a good conversation and delicious food at Zambistro's as well as a trip down to the historic Point Breeze, and she even got to catch the beauty of the Lake Ontario sunsets.  

On her second and final day in Orleans County, she got to explore more of Medina as well as other towns along the historic Erie Canal such as Albion and Holley. She was treated to A Peonies & Old Roses Luncheon at Hurd Orchards, where she was able to experience a beautiful and delicious luncheon all while learning more about Hurd Orchards and all they do. She also got to capture the beauty of one of the few waterfalls in Orleans County at Holley Falls Park
