Hundreds of independent specialty shops and boutiques along with more than a dozen art galleries make downtown Ithaca a mecca of urban culture.

The Ithaca Commons – a unique pedestrian center lined with some of the city’s most historic architectural facades – is the centerpiece of Ithaca’s engaging social and civic life. Just a short stroll away is the Dewitt Mall, a historic building housing a broad collection of locally-owned specialty shops, and Press Bay Alley, a series of micro-retail spaces that includes shopping, an espresso bar and ice cream.

Few centers of commerce and culture are closer to natural beauty than downtown Ithaca. During the warmer months, attend an outdoor concert at Dewitt or Stewart Park, follow a walking trail to one of Ithaca’s many waterfalls and visit the southern tip of Cayuga Lake, one of the beautiful Finger Lakes!

Enjoy a festival for every season hosted on the brick-paved walkways of the Ithaca Commons. Catch a film at Cinemapolis, a distinctive movie venue and art house, or watch a performance at the beautifully renovated, regionally renowned State Theatre.

Touted in the New York Times as one of America’s “Best Emerging Cities,” Ithaca is unquestionably the ideal playground for all.
