Does Any City Really Have It All?
Apartment renters who are looking for a laid back, well-educated, safe, environmentally friendly, warm and welcoming, well-planned, fun-loving city will find all of this in Ithaca, New York. Located upstate, this city is set back a bit from the chaos of New York City life and has some of the most beautiful scenery in New England. Waterfalls abound in Ithaca, and some of the streams tumble right through town. This city also has two prestigious colleges in it with over 25,000 total students in attendance. Though it's not nearly as large as New York City, there are more restaurants per capita than what's seen in the Big Apple, and enough art, music, and theater to keep everyone entertained and inspired.
Wine with a View
Over a dozen wineries line Ithaca's Cayuga Lake Wine Trail, an attraction in town that's not to be missed. Apartment renters in the area who are long-time connoisseurs or just learning to develop their palettes can stroll along this scenic trail (or take a boat along the shore, docking at the wineries that sit along the lake), often within view of the beautiful Finger Lakes. A plethora of artists also call this trail home, and many of them have opened their studios to the public. Visitors can browse for new paintings to adorn apartment walls, or just sit back and watch the masters at their craft. After a day of strolling through the countryside, Ithaca renters can sit down for a nice meal at fantastic restaurants, catch a live performance at the local theater and then take a taxi home.
Ithaca is Gorges
Ithaca is known for its gorgeous scenery and renters in the area can go on hundreds of scenic hikes. There's no need to drive out of Ithaca to enjoy the beauty of the natural world, either; one of Ithaca's most famous gorges, the Cascadilla Gorge, tumbles down 400 vertical feet from Cornell University into downtown. Apartment renters in Ithaca can visit a hundred different waterfalls and gorges in and around town, including the tallest waterfall in the Eastern United States, Taughannock Falls, which can be found in nearby Ulysses. It isn't hard for residents in this town to stay fit and active, either, as there's so much to see that it's hard for a person not to strap on some hiking boots and head out to explore a new waterfall or forest.
A Bit of Small Town Life
Though there are many ways to enjoy a quiet, personal communion with nature in Ithaca, there are also many ways to connect with neighbors and make life-long friends in this city. The city is broken down into small neighborhoods, each with its own personality and active community association. Both the city and individual neighborhoods host regular special events that provide a fun way for neighbors to get to know one another and have a great time. In the winter, look forward to ice skating and winter holiday parties. In the summer, cool down at the pool or put on your best 80's gear to show off your skills at the roller rink.
With two major universities in town, Ithaca College and the prestigious, Ivy League school Cornell, residents of Ithaca are some of the most well-educated people around. Between these two schools, there are over 25,000 students in attendance in Ithaca. Though not all of these students count towards the town's population of 30,000 residents, with so many students around, there's no getting away from the distinctive college-town vibe that Ithaca has. This is a city that values free thinking, creativity, and knowledge, and one that will invariably question the status quo. Renters who are looking for a place to live that will broaden their horizons should give Ithaca a closer look.
