Of all the things to see and do while in Binghamton, none is more obvious and noticeable than riding any one of six carousels spread out across the city. They are all antiques from an earlier time in history, but they still function like they did in the good old days. Take your sweetheart for a joy ride and watch the city lights twinkle from a distance. Enjoy the warm summer nights with a view of the two rivers that straddle the city. It is a great way to get a bird’s eye view of what makes this city so special.
The Parlor City
Not to be outshined by local business and the bland pervasiveness of manufacturing, Binghamton has a flourishing arts scene that has really exploded in the past few years. With art galleries, First Friday Art Walks sponsored by local merchants, the Binghamton Philharmonic, and a number of first-class museums and theaters, there is never a dull night in the city. The Anderson Center for the Performing Arts houses many major shows, both touring and local, and is a great way to enjoy a Friday night before hitting the town with some friends or on a date.
