About Chautauqua:

Chautauqua can be a place where a person ‘jumps off the world’ and immerses him/her self with a myriad of available opportunities that interests their mind and enriches their soul (click here for ideas).  

People who have never been to Chautauqua should think of their accommodations as a place to rest and keep their belongings. 

There are so many options of things to see, hear and do that if you are not sleeping – get out and experience Chautauqua – take advantage of all the things you paid for in your gate ticket!   At Chautauqua many people are so busy feeding their soul [classes, lectures, plays, symphony, ballet, opera, tennis, golf, sailing, boating, shuffle board, yoga, meditation]  they find it almost an intrusion to have to stop to feed their body!
