No. 24 Ithaca, NY

30 of 26

You don’t have to be an Ivy Leaguer to see why one of America’s most beautiful college campuses anchors one of the country’s most romantic towns. Its inhabitants may be quirky (No. 3 on our survey) and love their wine (No. 4; check out the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail), but this central New York town’s prime appeal is its scenery: more than 100 gorges and waterfalls, running quick in spring and speckled by a blaze of leaves in fall. Students of the heart should stop for a kiss alongside Cascadilla Gorge’s eight waterfalls, dropping more than 400 feet from Cornell’s campus to downtown’s Ithaca Commons. visitithaca.com
