Welcome to Ithaca, NY
Fall in Ithaca
Savor the fall season in Ithaca. This fall in particular, safety is top-of-mind. We’re warmly welcoming visitors while observing social distancing guidelines and public health recommendations.
There’s no shortage of things to do outdoors this time of year. Plan a hike to one of our scenic waterfalls or enjoy the crisp autumn air while picking apples—and make sure to taste some cider while you’re there! In our vibrant downtown, the pedestrian-only Ithaca Commons offers eclectic shops and local restaurants with plenty of walking space and outdoor dining.
Tompkins County combines the collegiate spirit from our institutions of higher education with the beauty found in open spaces and rolling hills. Take a drive and enjoy the stunning colors of fall foliage or visit vineyards along the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail—or both! After a day of exploring stay in one our cozy cabins or downtown hotels. Our particular mix of urban culture and rural charm is as stimulating as it is refreshing.
Fall always seems fleeting, but in Ithaca, you can experience all your favorite parts of the season in our gorges destination.
