Our city’s slogan has been silk-screened on t-shirts, bumper stickers, and naturally carved in stone: “Ithaca is Gorges”. But what does that really mean? Ithaca is more of an oasis than a destination, more discovery than itinerary. We’ve discovered the secrets that make our city unique and we want to share Ithaca with you.
A perfect group getaway from all of the metro Northeast, Ithaca is an easy drive to the Corning Museum of Glass, a half day to Niagara Falls, and midway between New York City and Toronto. It is the perfect hub for gatherings located amidst perfect activities for groups. And planning your group tour is easy. Offering a variety of lodging options with beautifully appointed rooms and amenities, we have the perfect fit for your group’s style and budget.
Ithaca is seeking mid-week motor coach groups!
You will love discovering the hundreds of waterfalls within minutes of our vibrant downtown; touring, tasting and toasting along the scenic wine, beer and cheese trails.
