Ithaca is a Great Place to Visit During December 

Regardless of whether you're going to be in Ithaca for a few days or over a week, in addition to visiting our Ithaca hobby shop, there are quite a few things you can enjoy doing. Even if you didn't have a chance to do much planning for your trip, you'll be happy to know that there are still plenty of things you can easily put on your itinerary.

When it comes to enjoying events like music recitals and live theater, both Ithaca College and Cornell University host a variety of events. Because these colleges have so much going on, it's worth checking out their schedules to see if any events of interest will be taking place during your time in Ithaca. And even if not, you can still enjoy spending a few afternoon hours in the wonderful art galleries these campuses have to offer.

If you want to enjoy some of the natural beauty the Ithaca area has to offer, Cayuga Lake is a great destination. Although it's definitely too cold this time of year to do anything in the lake itself, there are always plenty of fun things going on in the surrounding area.

In addition to taking in some of Ithaca's natural beauty, if you're looking for more ideas that will hold your kids' interest, the Discovery Trail is a great option. This name refers to a group of eight attractions that are both family-friendly and intellectually stimulating. Highlights from the Discovery Trail include the Sciencenter and Museum of the Earth.

Another place to check out that you may have heard of in the past is the Ithaca Farmers Market. If you were worried that they wouldn't be open during the colder months of the year, you'll be happy to know that they do continue to operate on Saturdays in both December and January.

Whether you're in Ithaca before or after Christmas, be sure to go check out the Ithaca Commons. Although some people assume this destination is just a mall, it's actually an open air attraction where you can enjoy everything from shopping to delicious food to truly talented street entertainers.

While all of the above ideas should help you get started in terms of filling your time in Ithaca, if you have any additional questions about what the area has to offer, don't hesitate to ask a member of our staff when you stop by our shop!
