We thankfully push the harsh cold, snow, and ice of winter out of here and get excited and warmed up with thoughts of sunny days in our area. Part of those warm thoughts come from the Lakeview Village Shoppes that open on May 3 for the 2014 season.
Since 1992, this quaint gathering of different gift, specialty and food shops on a boardwalk overlooking Lake Ontario in Olcott Beach, N.Y. has been a must-stop for tourists and locals. This year is setting up to be one of the best years yet.

Karen Young, owner of Gift Box at the Beach, says it’s a little stressful leading up to opening weekend, but it’s definitely exciting. “We are excited about the three new shops on the boardwalk to give a new variety and also seeing all the new products that our current shops carry,” she said. “We are also looking forward to seeing all of our regular customers that we haven’t seen in six months!”
Seasonal hours begin on the weekend of May 3 and go until the weekend of May 18 from noon until 7 p.m. From May 24 until Labor Day, the Shoppes are open 7 days a week, from noon until 7 p.m. From Sept. 6 until Oct. 31, the Shoppes will be open on weekends only from noon until 7 p.m.
