A small college town in the heart of upstate New York, Ithaca offers beautiful hiking trails and some pretty great food.

Ithaca New York is gorges! (Pun intended. :) It's a great college town filled with waterfalls and scenic spots. As home to both Cornell University and Ithaca College, it has a nice cozy down-to-Earth vibe. Ithaca has loads of great hikes, walks, trails and camping spots nearby making it a wonderful jumping off point for outdoor excursions.

This upstate New York college town has deep hippie roots—it’s the home of legendary vegetarian restaurant Moosewood—but these are not your typical flower children. Come February, instead of celebrating Valentine’s, the town makes a big to-do over Charles Darwin’s birthday, in its Darwin Days. Thanks to the area’s Cayuga Wine Trail, Ithaca also scored in the top five for vino. Start your taste testing with Six Mile Creek, which uses grapes even for distilled spirits like its Chardonnay-based gin.

Ithaca downtown is always full of surprises. Walking down there on a Saturday afternoon, you can experience different art pieces. Street arts, galleries, craft shops....and a lot of good food too!
