What to Do in Syracuse
There are plenty of great hotels in Syracuse, but you won't want to spend your whole time inside. You can start a perfect day on University Hill by taking a stroll around the old campus, which features a fascinating mix of architectural styles and designs. Enjoy the views looking north, as the hill provides a perfect panorama of the city and one of the best vistas of downtown. Next, spend the afternoon along the Onondaga Creek Walk, which winds through the downtown. Syracuse is located in New York's Finger Lakes region, and the area is dotted with perfect little waterways, like this one, which makes for an idyllic place to pass the afternoon. Finally, head to Armory Square for some Syracuse nightlife, including a stop at one of its many fine restaurants.
