America's Best College Towns

America's Favorite Towns: Ithaca

No. 13 Ithaca, NY

As the slogan says, “Ithaca is gorges,” and there are more than 100 gorges and waterfalls within 10 miles of downtown. But T+L readers love the quirky college town and surrounding area for the wine (No. 4 in our survey). Follow the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail, where you can visit 15 wineries, four distilleries, and a meadery. Back in town, head to Ithaca Commons, the local version of Main Street (No. 11), and join Cornell and Ithaca College students for healthy vegetarian fare at the legendary Moosewood Restaurant.
