For breakfast, Crown Street Roasting Company offers high-end coffee alongside a limited but scrumptious breakfast menu of bagels and sandwiches. A turkey apricot bacon sandwich with Asiago, lettuce and tomato will only run you $8.

 

The National Comedy Center hosted its grand opening this fall to plenty of fanfare and with several celebrity guests in attendance. The museum is thoroughly hands-on and, while you might spot a few glass-paneled display cases, you’re more often than not going to enjoy things like drawing on interactive touchscreens, watching larger-than-life videos and playing with comedic props. The museum warrants at least a few hours of exploration. Entry is $23.50.

 

For lunch, fuel up again at Labyrinth Press Company in historic Jamestown, a café and espresso bar with vegetarian options (think burritos, bowls, salads, sandwiches and soup). Enjoy classic coffee favorites or signature concoctions, like the White Wedding, a white mocha latte with almond syrup. You’ll spend less than $10 on your lunch, coffee included.

 

Jamestown is the birthplace of Lucille Ball, and the town proudly claims her with its annual Lucy Fest. However, there’s also the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum, which features set replicas from the iconic show, Lucy’s Emmy awards, costumes, memorabilia and more. Entry is $16.

 

If you’re planning a visit for the summer months, the Chautauqua Institution is open for nine weeks, with events ranging from lectures to artistic performances. The 750-acre compound welcomes thousands of people each day, who flock to the Institution for an exploration of the arts, religion, education and recreation. Entry starts at $17.

 

Treat yourself to an upscale dinner at the area’s newest luxury hotel, Harbor Hotel on Lake Chautauqua. The on-site restaurant, the Lakehouse Tap & Grill, serves up a delicious dinner menu, with hearty portions of steakhouse favorites, like grilled filet mignon, pork tenderloin and more, along with traditional sides like roasted asparagus and bourbon mashed sweet potatoes. Most entrees are less than $40.
