One of the beautiful Federal era homes on E. Genesee was the home of early an social justice advocate, Matilda Joslyn Gage. It is now the home of the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation, which, in addition to maintaining the house and its exhibits, supports social justice events in the area. You can visit the house, but you should call first to learn...more
This is a beautiful park - I just found out that it's been named to the Top 100 Campgrounds in the nation (I'm not sure where on the list it is, but it's on it!). The park is large, and has 2 small lakes in them. They are green in the right light. They are 2 of 15 lakes which the bottom and top layers of water never mix. There is a great path...more
The park was more than the lake. The municipal festivities for Memorial Day and the 4th of July were held here -- with plenty of music, flags and boring speeches:).Please click on the link below for pictures of the 2003 Memorial Parade -- you'll recognize the park -- where all parades end up in Fayetteville!more
When I started school back in the dark ages this was the building for all grades of the Fayetteville school district. After we merged with nearby Manlius -- thus giving up maroon and white for green and white, this was the high school. So I attended grade school and high school in this building! It is now a "middle school".There was an old oak tree...more
Bone Fish Grill is a chain that feels like a fine seafood restaurant. I've eaten at the one in Fayetteville a number of times and have never been disappointed. Unless you are going early (they open at 4pm) a reservation would be a good idea. You would ask:) It's a toss-up between the Bacon Wrapped Atlantic Sea Scallops with chutney + mango salsa...more
The restaurant was opened after the Inn was clearly a success. The food is upscale American and, was with Arad Evans, the best food in town. I think the quality has slipped since then. Recently the food has been greasy, nice menu items have been enlarged, portion-wise and look less appealing. The restaurant shares the Craftsman/Stickley ambiance of...more
This is run by 2 local women, and they've done a great job. The store has grown a lot since they've opened it. They only sell paperbacks which are half price. They will give 25% of the price in credit for books you bring in, but because they've grown so much and have limited space for books, they are very picky about the quality of the books they accept. They also won't take books if they already have several of the same title.
Recently they've expanded to sell audio books as well. Sometimes they carry new books which they'll sell at 20% off. They usually also carry "extras" like bookmarks, book covers, etc.
What to pay: Used books/audiobooks are half of the publisher's price.

The street we lived on crossed the creek and then took a bend as it went around the paper mill, down a hill obviously. This is where we would sled when there was snow. It was a *bit* adventerous as the road did curve so YOU had to steer well and also hope nothing was coming up the hill *lol* This picture is of the abandoned building after you round...more
The Four Seasons Golf/Ski Resort is touted as the smallest Ski Resort in the US. I'd believe it. It's a great slope for people to learn on, or if you need a cheap place to practice or play on the jumps. OR -- bring your kids there with sleds/inner tubes. They have a tubing hill - no need to haul yourself up the hill!! :)
They've recently expanded their skiing area, and you can go through paths in the woods. They also have about 4 miles of cross-country ski trails.
In the summer, they have golf driving ranges and batting cages, and they've recently added a mini-golf section.
Equipment: They have a ski shop with rentals or bring your own stuff.
