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!)

The campus of Syracuse University is really old and beautiful. This school really takes care of its grounds and it shows!
Turning Stone Casino is the closest Casino to Syracuse. Only a half-hour to the east. It's a great Casino with three hotels, three golf courses, and various showrooms for performers.

It is about a 30 minute drive away at the Finger Lakes Mall.
The MOST (Museum of Science and Technology) is a great museum located in Armory Square in downtown Syracuse. Fun place for kids! There is also an IMAX Theater at the MOST.
