Ithaca/Finger Lakes - 40th Anniversary

Jump to last reply

We're Californians starting our 40th anniversary trip with four nights in Ithaca NY May 4-7. These are the only four nights we could get at the William Henry Miller Inn in May. We're hoping the weather holds. I have along lists of outdoor things such as the local gorges and parks, plus Cornell arboretum and Sapsucker Woods. We've never visited this area.

We have Saturday, May 4 through Monday, May 13 for our trip. We're debating between:

1. Leaving Ithaca and staying around Letchworth Park for a few nights, then spending 1-2 nights in Niagra Falls (where I've never been). We'd fly out of Buffalo back to San Francisco.

2. Leaving Niagra for another time and flying in and out of Ithaca, doing a loop. We'd still stay in Letchworth as we're real hikers and it looks fantastic, but Sonnenburg Gardens looks awesome as well.

For the Ithaca loop, can you recommend other places to see? I read that the Erie Canal is in the area, but know nothing about it. Is it up by Sonnenburg?

We're 65 but in great shape. We like to hike, see gardens, perhaps do some kayaking if the weather cooperates, see historic neighborhoods, watch birds.

I realize there's a risk with the weather, but due to other commitments this is the only time we can visit the Finger Lakes.

Any suggestions are welcome and much appreciated.

Leslie
