    This is a broad spectrum question what all is there to do in upstate and central New York besides the wineries, hiking and hunting? I would like to go to a festival, museum, concert something different to maybe even meet someone.

    Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown (though I haven't been there myself). But best thing is to just keep going a bit further north and visit Montreal!

    If you visit Niagara Falls, go to the Canadian side and avoid the decayed, violent crime plagued, ghetto town on the American side entirely. Niagara Falls, NY is an almost exact clone of both Gary, IN and Camden, NJ.

    Buffalo is a great city that is on the rebound after roughly four decades of mostly decline and disinvestment. The architecture, the culture, the urban scene overall are second to none. Plus we have an almost fully intact Olmsted designed Parkway system the only loss was Humboldt Parkway on the city's east side. That was replaced by the horrendous Kensington Expressway (NY Route 33) which along with urban renewal ruined the east side. But the rest of Buffalo is beautiful with several historic buildings and whole neighborhoods being restored and commercial vitality coming back to many of the city's major thoroughfares. The waterfront is steadily being reclaimed and we have the successful Canalside on the downtown waterfront which is anchored by both the nearby First Niagara Arena and the multipurpose HarborCenter, a huge complex that consists of restaurants, shops, a luxury high rise Marriott Hotel, and three large indoor ice rinks. Just north of downtown is the historic Allentown neighborhood one of the largest urban historic preservation areas in the US. Allentown has also been the traditional hub of Buffalo's gay and lesbian community. If Victorian homes, red brick commercial buildings, art galleries, eclectic small shops, and vibrant nightspots are your thing, than Allentown is the neighborhood for you. If you check out my profile, you will notice photos of some of Buffalo's beautiful architecture and cityscape. Buffalo also has a beautiful four season climate, don't listen to the idiots in the media that think we have nine months of cold winter up here, definitely not true. Come on up and check out my home city.icon_biggrin.gif

    Ithaca is a neat, unique city of gorges, steep hills, historic homes, and a lively urban vibe all sandwiched nicely between the historic, sprawling campus of Cornell University and Cayuga Lake. I have fond memories of that historic, vibrant, little city.icon_smile.gif
