Ithaca College Campus
It's certainly not as widespread or majestic as the Cornell Campus, but there are some lovely, quiet spaces. There are also some interesting (?) things to see. This sculpture has the typical legend that it will roll down the hill the first time a virgin graduates. It's been proven untrue, however. The view from the top of the lecture hall is lovely. Sunsets and sunrises look wonderful from up here...and even though a lot of the empty spaces have disappeared, the chapel area and upper areas still have a sense of tranquility.

Ithaca's Winery-Six Mile Creek Vineyard
Nestled on the southwest slope of one of Ithaca's most picturesque settings, Six Mile Creek Vineyard is a boutique winery featuring a variety of hand-crafted wines. As a family partnership, Nancy and Roger Battistella handle all aspects of the business from concept to production, with additional support from a dedicated staff committed to making your visit enjoyable. The winery is housed in a splendidly restored turn-of-the-century Dutch-reform barn in which tasting room visitors are charmed by spectacular views of Six Mile Creek valley and vineyards, along with landscaped gardens.
Located within minutes of Cornell University and Ithaca College, as well as the beautifully developed Downtown Ithaca area, our winery is a hub for information on local tourism including restaurants, shopping facilities, lodgings, and nearby state parks. As a member of the Cayuga Wine Trail since 1987, we collaborate closely with neighboring wineries to increase consumer knowledge and enjoyment of wines produced within the area. Positioned at the southern-most end of the Cayuga Wine Trail, our winery is an excellent starting point to begin your wine tour.
I am making plans...buying a farm im nearby Trumansburg to spend the summer out of the Florida heat. In the spring when its lacrosse season and in the fall when Harvard/Yale/Dartmouth(et al) play Cornell in football at Schoellkopf Crescent I miss Ithaca so much I could cry.Ths cool winds off Cayuga Lake and the myriads of summer fairs and carnivals that abound in surrounding towns make the Finger Lakes a veritable paradise. To me at least.
The Finger Lakes Region is the oldest wine-producing district in the East, offering visitors beautiful scenery, informative winery tours and tastings of some of the finest wines made today. For a taste of the Cayuga Lake Wine Region, sample the estate wineries along the Cayuga Wine Trail that starts on Route 414 in Seneca Country and works its way southward around the lake. Take a guided tour or strike out on your own. Just look for the signage around the lake!
