Things to Do in Syracuse
Syracuse may not be as cosmopolitan as its big Empire brother down state, but it still offers a variety of attractions. Check out Erie Canal Museum, housed in a National Register building and dedicated to story of the Erie Canal. Everson Museum of Art is a popular spot to see American art. The Museum of Science and Technology (MOST) features more than 200 exhibits and houses Upstate New York's only IMAX Domed Theater.
Wondering how to spend a romantic night out in town? Go to the Landmark Theatre, Syracuse's premier performing arts center that brings big-name artists and performances. The Syracuse Opera is the only year-round professional opera serving central New York, and the Carrier Dome, sports venue for Syracuse University, is the only domed stadium on a college campus in the Northeast. If you're in town in late August, be sure to swing by the New York State Fair, the longest-running state fair in the country.
