City Information

Scranton

You might know Scranton from the award-winning documentary that took place there, The Office. But Scranton is much more than paper and beet farms.

The Steamtown National Historic Site is a little museum dedicated to steam engines and their role in the economy of the United States throughout the nineteenth century. The Anthracite Heritage Museum engages a wide range of audiences by interpreting, collecting, and presenting the story of hard coal mining, allied industries, northern Pennsylvania's historic immigrant culture, and the evolution of the region's culture.

Ithaca

Blessed with over 150 waterfalls within 10 miles, Ithaca is every outdoors fan’s petit haven. The most notable, and the tallest of the bunch, is the Taughannock Falls. There are hiking trails located close to the falls that will provide an amazing overlook of the falls itself, but do stay away from the water in the gorges. If hiking is not your cup of tea, perhaps a boat cruise on Lake Cayuga, which is the longest of the Finger Lakes, will offer the tranquility and peace of mind you need. For culturally-inclined tourists, don’t hesitate to take a short detour to the State Theatre of Ithaca, which offers top-tier shows and concerts that charm locals and visitors alike.

Ithaca boasts even more restaurants per capita than New York City, and its amazing food scene seems to have a little bit of everything for everyone. For the best burger in town, check out Ithaca Ale House. If Italian food is your thing, the door at Franco’s is wide open for you.

Several bus carriers conduct trips in and out of Ithaca, including Greyhound, OurBus, Flixbus and New York Trailways. Unfortunately, there are currently no Amtrak trains that go to Ithaca.
