17 Awesome Things to do in Ithaca, NY

I have been visiting Ithaca, New York for years and continue to find new adventures each time I visit.  Always an adventure. Enjoy:

1. Camp, hike or swim at Robert H Treman State park.

Robert Treman State Park is a large 1,110 acre park near Ithaca New York.  The park is beautiful and has many waterfalls along a 4.5 mile round trip hike.  You can park at the lower end of the park by the campgrounds and swimming area by the Lower Falls.  In the summer the waterfalls empty into a beautifully clean and refreshing swim area.  Jumping off the diving boards, swimming and walking along the rocky falls is fun. We have spent several summers camping in the affordable cabins which of course welcome children and pets, each equipped with 4 cots, a refrigerator and outlet for a lamp or coffee pot and a spot for barbeques and campfires.
