Go to the Dinasour BBQ - It's a Blues Bar with the most diverse group of people working and eating there. Then go to Armory Square and walk from bar to bar meeting new and interesting people.
Fondest memory: People are always friendly. (Okay, exaggerating, but just a bit)
When visiting Syracuse you absolutely must: Check out the Burnet Park Zoo, MOST Museum (interactive museum
with plantarium shows.),Onondaga Park, Syracuse Histrorical Society, St. Marie Among the Iroquois (Museum and
outside portion with live enactment of life in early America), Top of the Hill (Irish section of town with irish resturant and
store all only place with green light above the red on a street lamp as a show of Syracuse's Irisih heritage) and Carosel
Fondest memory: At Christmas Lights on the Lake, and in summer Irish, Scottish, and German
Festivals in Onondaga Park.
Favorite thing: Take some time to tour around the university! Don't miss the Crause School of music (pictured here), After the long climb up the stairs, you can walk down the school's wooden hallways and hear the violins and pianos play. Truely a spectacular experience!!
See the SU Carrier Dome, Green Lakes State Park, Burnett Park Zoo. Take a Wine trail trip in the fingerlakes.
Fondest memory: Going to Syracuse University Grad School and living on the fringe. Parents lived in Syracuse. Watching SU Football and Basketball.
Favorite thing: I would say that, during the spring, summer, or fall, Green Lakes in Fayetteville is a must-see. It is a beautiful lake; the color is like no other, it's very blue. It has an excellent walking trail, and is just a very peaceful place.
This is the link to a web cam of stream video looking at Clinton Square.
Favorite thing: Syracuse has many fine old mansions and homes. This home is on James Street on the city's north side.
Favorite thing: Newly built Visitors Center located in the village of Liverpool, just north of Syracuse on Onondaga Lake.
Favorite thing: The Galleries was an attempt to bring shopping back to downtown. It ended up becoming the Main County Library and Offices.
Favorite thing: Syracuse is planning to extend the Creekwalk along Onondaga Creek. In the future it should be real nice. Today, parts of the Creekwalk go past Franklin Square and the Inner Harbor Area.
Favorite thing: Most of the buildings around Clinton Square date back to the Erie Canal era. The Erie Canal went right down the center what currently is Clinton Square! I like the historic Architecture.
Favorite thing: The Nimo building is a great designed old building. It lights up at night. The colors change with the season!
Favorite thing: Visit the Zoo. It is great and they have an elephant breeding program so you can usually see a baby elephant.
