Perry lies in the heart of Western New York, at the gateway to Letchworth State Park, the Grand Canyon of the East...and steps away from the shores of Silver Lake and its famous Sea Serpent.
Seasons speak here, from fall foliage at Letchworth State Park to boating, swimming, and ice fishing at Silver Lake...the sea serpent...mini golf, cruise nights, and live performances at the Silver Lake Twin Drive-In and Charcoal Corral.

A Recreation Destination
Letchworth State Park has a main entrance in Perry, just east of downtown. This "Grand Canyon of the East" includes spectacular 500-feet deep gorges carved out by prehistoric glaciers and the north-flowing Genesee River. There are trails for hiking, biking, walking, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing, guided nature activities, canoing and kayaking, camping facilities, cabins, and a historic restaurant and Inn.
Silver Lake, southwest of downtown, is not just home to the legendary sea serpent, but is also a popular destination for boaters, fishermen, and visitors. Along the water's edge, the Silver Lake Institute contains hundreds of year-round residents, many living in a dense, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood filled with historic East lake Victorian cottages.
Near the Institute are an art gallery, several performance halls, a public dock and beach, and the historic Pioneer Grounds (a living museum). Other nearby amenities include a campground, several marinas, a country club and restaurant, and the Charcoal Corral/Silver Lake Twin Drive-In, a popular seasonal establishment. At the south end of Silver Lake lies Silver Lake State Park, a natural retreat with a boat launch. What's missing? Perhaps just you!
