Ithaca is Gorges!

Ithaca is located in the Central Finger Lakes Region of New York State at the southern tip of 40-mile-long Cayuga Lake and the home of Ivy League Cornell University, four State Parks, including Taughannock Falls, a waterfall with a higher vertical drop than Niagara Falls.

Five hundred generations ago, glaciers a mile high surrendered to a landscape of crystal lakes, jagged gorges and thundering waterfalls. Today the view is green with vineyards and farms. It's lush with gentle hills and  lively with villages and energized by people who love the sights, sounds and flavors of a region still unspoiled.

Our first stop is the Ithaca Farmers Market. 
A trip to the farmers market is like heaven to us.
Everything is locally grown and oh so delicious!

Just Desserts offers artisan breads, flatbreads from the wood fired oven, croissant, pain au chocolate. Brioche, brownies, cookies, muffins.  They make the best flat crust pizza's.

You can find locally grown vegetables, herbs and fruit.

Tiohero Tours offers daily historical narrated tours on Cayuga Lake originating from the Ithaca Farmers Market at Steamboat Landing.
