Olcott Beach was one of the first beaches I visited as a kid. My grandfather and grandmother owned a cottage on Lake Road between Ransomville and Wilson. Of all the towns along the Great Lakes in New York State, Olcott is by far my favorite. This small town on Lake Ontario is full colorful shops, a vintage amusement park, Olcott basically has everything you want for your fun summer getaway.
Lake Ontario is one of the five North American Great Lakes surrounded on the north, west, and southwest by Canada, and on the south and east by New York State. Ontario, Canada's most populous province, was named for the lake.
