Welcome to

Ithaca, NY!

Ithaca is “gorges” in any season, but spring is an especially great time to experience our many rushing waterfalls. Snowmelt swells the cascades to impressive levels before the summer crowds hit. Some of our favorites include Taughannock Falls, Lick Brook Falls, and Triphammer Falls. As a season of beginnings, spring is a great time to explore something new. Find upcoming events focused on Ithaca’s beloved beverages, wine and cider. From educational to experiential, these events are as engaging as they are celebratory.

If you are planning a multi-gen vacation, we’ve also got suggestions for how to make the most of a family trip to Ithaca. Sapsucker Woods is an easy 3-mile loop and one of the best places for bird watching in the area. Bring the kids and experience these and other activities as a family. Whether you’re staying in a hotel, booking a bed & breakfast, or, as the weather gets warmer, going camping, Ithaca’s got top-notch lodging options.
