Not too much to report. It’s a small-feeling town surrounded by a good bit of nature. A few fall leaves were still hanging around, but for the most part, winter has already taken its first breath.
I’ve been scouring the internet trying to find something interesting about the little city to share with y’all…but to no avail. Just take a look at the “little known facts” page on Syracuse’s website and you might see what I mean.
As I walked around the downtown area, I noticed some charming architecture. You can tell the city used to really be something, but it seems that those days have come and gone. Luckily it’s located near the Finger Lakes, which is a nice plus.
If you like the small-town feel and breath-taking falls, this city could be for you.

  1. Why the trip to Syracuse!?
    Have to do Syracuse in Sept. That’s when it’s gorgeous. Falls, foliage, etc.

    Come Oct – March you could envision this is where ‘White Walkers’ might take up home.
    Hella Winter!

    Definitely has seen affects of the ‘Rust belt’, but Salt of the Earth type place.
    Like Chicago, you have to respect folks that can embrace and brutal winter, and find ways to enjoy those long/dark months with nice warm glass of booze, with great company!

    Syracuse, and Western NY (Buffalo, etc.) feel almost Midwest in many ways – very much like Western PA or NE Ohio.

    Orange Basketball is by far the biggest attraction! Record for Home games on campus (+35K) every year.
    Will push 50K if they ever move the court to mid-field at the dome.

    Some great craft Brew/Pubs (Armory Sq., etc.):
    Middle Ages, Empire,… or check out Blue Tusk, and Al’s Ale & Whiskey Lounge. Coleman’s Pub in Tipperary Hill is a must for anyone with Irish green in their blood.
    Ale & Angus is also ‘just a slap shot away’ from the War Memorial (Brent Axe voice).

    DINO BBQ!

    ‘CUSE!

    • WOW! Love this in-depth response. I think you’re right, I’d love the area during fall. I remember I went to Albany a few years ago during fall and I was mesmerized.
      I did try out Middle Ages. They have a good IPA. Brew Pubs are my favorite!
      You’re so sweet to give so many great suggestions!
      I should have asked you before my trip!
