The Seneca Lake Pier, in Watkins Glen, New York, is a lovely spot to relax and enjoy the views of Seneca Lake. The lake is the deepest of the Finger Lakes and has an estimated volume of 4.2 trillion gallons. Seneca Lake accounts for roughly half of the water in the Finger Lakes as a whole.
The pier is located just off Margaret Lane and it is open to the public year-round. There are plenty of benches along the pier which make it a great spot for reading a book or having lunch. The end of the pier sits on the Seneca Harbor Breakwater which guards the hundreds of boat slips nearby.
