Visiting Ithaca

Ithaca, home to Cornell University and Ithaca College, repeatedly turns up on Best U.S. College Town lists, often in the top spot -- and for good reason.

With beautiful gorges, state parks, a Collegetown neighborhood bustling with nightlife, and The Commons, a four-block pedestrian shopping area with outdoor live music, restaurants and quirky boutiques, Ithaca is a great stop for nature lovers, hikers, campers and foodies -- as well as co-eds.
