Absolutely beautiful. Very relaxing. Check out the overviews of Ithaca and Cayuga Lake. We did stop at the Museum of Art, not expecting much, and was surprised at the amount of historical artifacts located there.

Visited Cornell to check out the AD White Library (do not miss it) and the Johnson Museum (also something that you shouldn't miss). The campus is well cared for and beautiful views abound. Lots of green space. Wish I would have checked into the campus...More

Beautiful campus. We were there on a Sunday around noon and enjoyed hearing a number of tunes played from the tower bells--including It's A Small World. The trails and gardens in and around campus are even more beautiful than buildings.

If you are in Ithaca, a drive to the University is a must. We have driven through and walked the grounds many times. There is a lot to see and do. Check it out! Not to mention the ice cream :)

Beautiful Campus! Organization of all graduation events were meticulously planned. Commencement speech by former VP Biden was funny but carried a lot of sense, " Awake Us" he told the graduating class to a full capacity Schoelkopf Field. Ice Cream social was a plus! The...More
