Destination guide

Syracuse: The gateway to Central New York State

Like New York's quirky little brother, Syracuse pops forth from the edge of the so-called Finger Lakes region between rolling hills of sugar maple trees. Up its sleeve is a medley of off-beat museums and world-renowned jazz festivals, Polish heritage shindigs and ceramics collections that are hailed as some of the most prestigious in all of America. Life also pulses through the streets, ebbing out from Armory Square, past cool Syracuse vacation rentals, and out to the lakeside parks where dog walkers, joggers, zoos, and oodles of other attractions await.

Things to do

Syracuse showcases the treasures of New York State

Forget navigating the booming crowds of NYC's world-famous museums, because Syracuse has the off-beat ceramics collections of the Everson Museum. And if that's still not quirky enough, then why not delve into the Erie Canal Museum to trace the meticulous construction of The Empire State's vast 19th-century waterway network? Wilder attractions beckon from the Rosamond Gifford Zoo too, in the form of Asian elephants and penguins, while those looking for a taste of backcountry New York can search for Syracuse vacation rentals close to the Green Lakes or pretty Onondaga.


Jazz tunes and theaters in Syracuse

Syracuse has staked its claim on every music lover's map with its yearly jazz festival. Trombones and trumpets, saxophones and double basses all coalesce in the city for the June time blowout, which has been called the largest free open-air music event in the whole north-east region. And if New Orleans jives and bebop aren't your thing, there's always the Syracuse University Orange teams to cheer on, earthy Irish neighborhoods to wander, and local flea markets to haggle in each week.


Summertime heat and fall colors entice crowds to Syracuse

Syracuse has a distinct set of seasons, going from snow-blanketed winters to warm summers spent on the lakeside. The latter is when most opt to come, eager to hike the trails of the Green Lakes and enjoy the town's al fresco zoos between the months of May and August. However, October and November in the fall can also be great times to go in search of Syracuse vacation rentals, if only to catch a glimpse of the New York State forests turning from green to red to yellow.

Natural features

Syracuse and Central New York State's lakes

Syracuse sits right in the geographical heart of New York State, between the elongated waters of the so-called Finger Lakes. That means a trip to local beaches and forested trails by the water's edge is never too far away, while the rest of the landscape is typically given over to rolling hills and pockets of maple groves. Lake Ontario is under an hour's drive to the north, and the dense woods of the New Michigan State Forest rise to the south, offering hunting grounds, wild bird watching, fishing, and snowshoeing trails by winter.
