  • The New York State Fair

    by kdunn Written Feb 25, 2003

    An all encompassing extravaganza which has something for everyone - kiddies' attractions (rides, petting zoos, etc), midway, food, concerts (free and admission), food, exhibits (from agricultural to commercial), food. This can be thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family, on a budget (many, many free things to do) or blowout (there are unending opportunities to spend!)

    People live, work, eat and shop in Syracuse's smallest square. Very historic area near where the Erie Canal used to run through Syracuse.

    Little Italy, Syracuse, NY

    Little Italy has little shops and restaurants. This historic district was just recently created. I'm sure it will get more investment in the future!
