So much to do

I love the atmosphere in Ithaca. People are very open and accepting - no one cares what you are or aren't into. A lot of this comes from the influx of students from all over the world who attend Cornell and IC. There are also immigrants who have settled there, so you can walk down the street and hear languages from all over the world - Vietnamese, Serbian, Spanish, whatever. Pretty impressive for such a small city. The things to do in and around Ithaca reflect this multicultural variety. There's so much to do and around the city, especially if you're into outdoor things. There's hiking, swimming, wineries, small non-chain stores, outdoor concerts, everything.

    I've taken Short Line Bus between Ithaca and New York a few times, service has been reliable, and they have a good schedule. travelamerica360.com/ithaca-...

    While I disagree with your positive assessment of Moosewood (it's always disappointed me), your tips are great! I'm going to check out what's going on at the Haunt...Milc nights were always fun.
