Chautauqua Institution is a one-stop vacation experience destination. Spend a day, a week, or an entire summer at this idyllic lakeside community. Sit in on readings and craft talks from writers and poets in residence, attend a morning or afternoon lecture dedicated to the important political, cultural and social issues of the day, delivered by world-class speakers and thought leaders in their respective fields, or take a Special Studies course on wine tasting, ceramics, photography, and more.
A stellar line-up of performances from the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra, prestigious dance companies, and popular entertainers ranging from comedians to top musical performers mean a show every summer evening in the open-air Chautauqua Amphitheater. The Athenaeum Hotel’s Heirloom Restaurant is ready to serve hotel guests and visitors in their Lobby Lounge, dining room, or porch overlooking Chautauqua Lake.
Chautauqua Institution boasts a picturesque, lakeside, National Historic District campus featuring manicured gardens and green spaces – plus expressions of every era of American architecture dating to the late 1800s. Swing away at Chautauqua Golf Club’s two public, four-start rated courses, hit the courts at the Chautauqua Tennis Center, or learn to sail from certified instructors at the John R. Turney Sailing Center.
