The restaurants in town are tremendous. It is said that Ithaca actually has more restaurants per capita than NYC. This is pretty impressive considering Ithaca is not that large of a place. It is also College Town. With us, Cornell, and a community college in the area, there ends up being around 30,000 college students inhabiting this little town. This makes the weekends interesting to say the least. The greatest part would have to be the fact so many places stay open and deliver in order to accommodate for all of us. We also have to TCAT, which is a bus that helps make transportation easier. Lastly, there is an airport located in Ithaca, which is definitely convenient.
