Where to have a great time in Ithaca summer
I ll be going to Cornell in late June To July. Where is a place I can relax, have great food and meet people at night as in the am i ll be attending classes.
RE: Where to have a great time in Ithaca summer
Both the Collegetown area (just outside the south entrance of Cornell campus) and the Ithaca Commons (downtown) meet your requirements. There are tons of great bars and restaurants in both places. Just make sure you find housing within walking distance of one or the other and you will be fine.
Travel Tips for Ithaca
Tour the Cornell Campus. ...
Tour the Cornell Campus. Cornell - Ivy League, baby -is one of the most beautiful college campuses in the world. In almost every season (be sure to dress warmly in the winter!), Cornell pleases and delights all your senses! Stand atop Libe Slope and see majestic Cayuga Lake framed by the historic Baker Towers. Stop and smell the rare flowers at the world famous Plantations. Eat some excellent ice cream (egg nog is my favorite) at the Dairy Barn or sip some moccachino and chow on a California Bagel with dill cream cheese at College Town bagels (see a cool sample menu on this page). Check out brains, glow in the dark rocks, crazy underground libraries, the crazy undergrad students... I'd like to say my favorite memory was at the Royal Palm Tavern, but I don't remember too much about that! :) Seriously ... what I miss about Ithaca is the community. People are friendly in Ithaca, it has never lost it's small town appeal. Though a majority of the residents are transient, the spirit of Ithaca remain immovable.
Ithaca College Campus
The fountains are lit up at night and have a little dance they like to do. Also, standing by the fountains affords another wonderful view of the lake, downtown, and the Cornell campus. The fountains are directly in front of the theatre building. Fantastic shows have been presented here! Seniors used to jump into the fountains during senior week...do they still do that?
Facetime at Cornell is the expression for the activity of seeing and being seen. A typical Cornelian will go to places (i.e. The Straight at lunchtime, Uris library to study) in order to "get Facetime".
I have never heard this expression being used outside of Cornell.
Cornell University has all the sports a major unversity has, but none come close to the popularity of the hockey team, which plays in cozy Lynah Rink.
If you like College Hockey, a visit to Lynah Rink is a must not only due to its extremely tight confines (it is currently being renovated, but will only expand marginally) but also for the ambiance the Cornell students, all of whom seem to have memorized a small book of cheers for their team, not to mention jeers and insults for the visitors.
However, plan ahead because tickets can be extremely hard to come by, especially against rivals Harvard and Colgate. A good bet is to look on online university billboards where students may be selling their tickets for a specific game.
Ithaca is a good jumping-off spot for a winery tour. There are about 35 wineries within about 2 hours of Ithaca. There are several up the west side of Cayuga Lake (Ithaca is on the south tip of this lake). There are also many more around Seneca Lake, the next Finger Lake to the west. There are a few more areound Kueka Lake, further west yet. Most wineries are open every day in the summer and on weekends during the winter. Almost all do tastings. I think that NY law requires that they charge for tastings - the ones that I've been to charge $1 which will be taken off any purchace that you make. All sell the wines they let you taste, and most also have other things for sale - this ranges from more types of wines to gift items (clothing, cookbooks, wine glasses/corks/wine carriers, etc). A few also have bistros, cafes, or full restaurants. Some have picnic spots.
The Cayuga and Seneca Wine Trails are well marked with signs. There is one main route you follow (I think the Cayuga Trail is on 89, the Seneca is 14); just follow the signs. All the wineries are well marked.
