Welcome to Ithaca, NY

Ithaca is Gorges - Even in Winter!

Winter in Ithaca is something spectacular to see. Between the many frozen waterfalls, snow-covered landscapes perfect for cross-country skiing, and annual winter events in Downtown Ithaca, there is no winter retreat quite like what you will find in Tompkins County of New York.

Cozy up in a romantic inn, enjoy memorable farm to fork dining experiences, or bundle up and go for a relaxing winter hike on an Ithaca area hiking trail. And don’t forget, wine and beer tastings at Cayuga Lake wineries and breweries present a completely different experience in wintertime. Grab a glass of seasonal flavors and gaze out at the snowy winter wonderland. What are you waiting for? Visit Ithaca this winter and join the fun!
