Making a Mark

Perhaps Elmira’s biggest claim to fame is its decades’ long relationship to world-famous author Mark Twain. Every summer, Twain, whose real name was Samuel Clemens, and his wife would stay at his sister-in-law's farm here. At the time, Twain was so fond of the town that he was buried in Woodlawn Cemetery. Twain’s grave is marked by a 12-foot tall monument that is a tribute to his pen name. "Mark twain" is a nautical term that means the water must be at least 12 feet deep before a riverboat can safely enter a river to sail.

Paintings and Perform

Mark Twain may be departed now, but culture is alive and well in Elmira. The National Soaring Museum has dozens of exhibits on early flight and the history of gliders, along with gliders taking off and landing outside in the beautiful scenery. The Arnot Art Museum is a hidden gem; a regal house over a century old containing the private art collection of Matthias Arnot. For lively performances ranging from the latest in blockbuster Broadway hits to energizing rock 'n' roll concerts, the Clemens Center for Performing Arts will satisfy your desire for dazzling entertainment.

Tee Time and Walkabou

The Mark Twain Golf Course was not around when the author spent time in Elmira; however, this classy, challenging course bears his name nonetheless. The course was voted as the “No. 1 Best Kept Secret” by Golf Digest Magazine in 2004. If you prefer your nature to be more natural, the Tanglewood Nature Center & Museum has peaceful trails and shimmering ponds. This nature center may be small, but it has abundant beauty and educational points of interest. Eldridge Park has a little of everything good in a park, from a lake and carousel to soccer and softball fields.
