If you’re planning a visit to Ithaca, New York, make sure to consider our Ithaca car hire services when you budget your trip as your main means of transportation. While it is a small city, Ithaca is well known for being home to Cornell University and Ithaca College, other more natural features that it is known for being its several gorges and waterfalls.
The city is mainly served by the Ithaca Airport but you could land in nearby Binghamton, Scranton or Syracuse and drive into Ithaca. If you do land here however, you can have our Ithaca car rental services have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you at the airport at an hour that you specify.
While the town is very much a college town, it also has a very solid and rather vibrant permanent community and while Cornell is an Ivy League school, it excels in state-wide agricultural and veterinary research, so Ithaca is a bit of a town of contrasts.
Talking about the great natural beauty that the town has to offer its visitors, one has to start with the waterfalls. Many of them can be found within state parks with hiking trails all around them which usually feature stone staircases and bridges. You will usually find a hiking trail along the course of a creek and its gorge of course.
The Buttermilk Falls State Park is a great place for those who love the outdoors to engage in a variety of activities like swimming, hiking, camping and picnicking. Even if you don’t plan on doing any of the above you should still visit the place.
In a similar vein, if you do want to explore as much of the outdoors in Ithaca as possible, make sure to visit the Robert H. Treman State Park. You can do all the things that we mentioned earlier including hiking along the gorge in order to reach the main falls, Lucifer Falls.
These are of course only a few of the things that you can see and do while in Ithaca, so make sure to consider employing our Ithaca car hire services in order to better explore this city and its surroundings.
