Welcome From The Mayor

The historic Village of Sodus Point, NY. Sodus Point is a wonderful place to live, visit and play.

To Live: The Village is a small and quaint place where we boast that we do not have a stop light! It’s really a little “cottage” village surrounded by the waters of Great Sodus Bay, the largest bay on the south shore of Lake Ontario. The businesses and residents are heavily involved in community projects making Sodus Point one of the best places to live all year around.

To Visit: Historic Sodus Point is full of history going back to the War of 1812 and beyond. There are murals on the west and east side of the fire hall depicting some of the history. The Sodus Bay Historical Society supports the “old lighthouse museum” which is a wonderful place to visit; not only for the local information it offers, but the spectacular view of the lake and lake shoreline. The “society” also hosts the free weekly Sunday afternoon concerts during the summer. You’ll hear everything from Glenn Miller, to Gap Magione and even a little bit of Blue Grass. There are numerous places to eat and you can stay overnight at a lodge or one of the numerous bed and breakfasts in the “point”.

To Play: You will find the fishing for perch, bass, lake trout or king salmon, whether in your own boat or a charter boat exciting. If you are a hearty one, you may find ice fishing or even ice boating a refreshing treat to the cabin blues. There is a swimming beach on both lake and bay side where you can swim, play in the surf, and walk the beach. A beautiful golf course overlooks the bay where your view may be more important than your score.

Visit our official website for links to points of interest, activities and schedules that will make you want to visit or live in historic Sodus Point. Get to the point!
