2021 Ithaca vacations

Ithaca Vacations

Ithaca, home to Cornell University, is a laid-back, attractive city; an ideal place if you're searching for an all-inclusive vacation in New York state. Located on the edge of scenic Cayuga Lake, one of the glacial Finger Lakes, the city offers a great combination of urban and rural activities.

Major Attractions

Ithaca has a plethora of natural landscapes, including spectacular gorges and waterfalls. Once you've arrived for your Ithaca vacation, head to one of the highlights of the city, Cascadilla Gorge. Organize your Ithaca car rental, and journey to nearby Cayuga Nature Center, where you'll hike trails, view woodland animals, and climb the six-story treehouse. Discover the magnificent waterfalls in Buttermilk Falls State Park, bathe at the lake beach and let the kids enjoy the playground. Johnson Museum of Art, on Cornell's campus, is a must-see for art lovers; the remarkable views of the lake and the city make it well worth a visit. As you enjoy your Ithaca package vacation, pop into some of the many art galleries and studios scattered across the city.

Festivals and Events

Fall is the most beautiful time of year to book one of the hotels in Ithaca, as that's when the trees show off their glorious orange, crimson, and yellow foliage. Also, the reflections on the water of Cayuga Lake create excellent photo opportunities. Or, visit during the end of May to see the Ithaca Festival for the grand parade and four days of music and arts celebrations. Connect with your roots at the Ithaca Celtic Festival in June, and immerse yourself in the music, crafts, and food of the people.
