Parks & Nature
Taughannock Falls State Park's waterfall is one of the outstanding natural attractions of the Northeast. The waterfall plunges 215 feet past rocky cliffs that tower nearly 400 feet above the gorge. You can either drive a couple miles North on Route 89 to get to the front entrance of the park to walk to the bottom of the Falls, or take The Black Diamond Trail from our house and bike/walk/run 3 miles to the top of the Falls. If you're in Ithaca, Taughannock is a must-see. If you're looking for a beach to swim in the lake, head over to the Eastern lake side of the park. www.parks.ny.gov/parks/62/details.aspx

This is probably our favorite local park. Winding trails follow the gorge past 12 waterfalls, including the 115-foot Lucifer Falls, to where visitors can see a mile-and-a-half down the wooded gorge. You have to go here! Either start at the lower entrance where you can walk the entire length of the park (about 5-6 miles in total), or go the second far entrance and make a smaller loop (about 2 miles) that brings you right to the gorges. The far entrance walk begins at an old mill. There is also a natural swimming pool at the lower entrance. www.parks.ny.gov/parks/135/details.aspx

Buttermilk Falls State Park takes its name from the foaming cascade formed by Buttermilk Creek as it flows down the steep valley side toward Cayuga Lake. There is a beautiful natural swimming pool at the beginning of the trail that is a perfect summer spot for a picnic or cooling off before/after your hike. The hike itself is for the more advanced, as it begins with what may seem like an endless set of stairs! But don't let that scare you off! You don't want to miss this spot. Reward yourself at the top by plunging into one of many swimming holes eroded by the flowing water. www.parks.ny.gov/parks/151

Really good Thai food, simple as that. The pad thai is perfection, but you can't leave without trying their Tom Yum coconut soup, which we lovingly call "crack soup" for a reason. Yep, it's the kind of dish you'll be talking about weeks later. You can get a ton of food for little cost. A perfect budget friendly place for lunch or dinner!

If you're having too good of a time to leave the suite (we get it...it's awesome in there) order food to be delivered right to the suite with Ithaca To Go, our local Grub Hub-esque take out company. Choose from dozens of local spots for delivery right to you. Just be forewarned: There is a $10 delivery fee in addition to the driver's tip, and many restaurants have a minimum order requirement, so be prepared to spend a little extra. It generally takes 45 minutes to an hour from the time you order for the food to arrive here. Totally worth it though for when you're just not in the mood to go out! Make a note at checkout for delivery to go to the suite, not our front door. www.ithacatogo.com

Our local bowling alley is so much more than just a bowling alley! You can go here just to eat at the restaurant or have a drink at the bar if you're not into bowling and you'll still have a great time. They offer a full-service restaurant with upscale fancy pub-style food. Vegetarian/vegan friendly menu! www.atlasbowl.com/locations/atlas-bowl
