The city of Ithaca has a unique downtown to say the least.
Literally minutes from natural gorges and waterfalls you’ll
find yourself in a bustling urban setting. Perhaps you’ll
past a local artist working on the corner, a band playing a free
concert in the commons, or a political debate ensuing in a
pavilion. As you roam around downtown you’ll pass local
boutiques and shops, art galleries, and a host of fantastic bars
and restaurants. Downtown Ithaca definitely has something for
everyone, so come and see it for yourself!
The Commons is the heart of Ithaca’s downtown. Walking
through this pedestrian only area you’ll enjoy the diverse
local businesses and restaurants. Not only the commercial heart,
the Commons also hosts many of the frequent festivals in town
making it a center of culture and community action.
Bordering on the commons is the Dewitt mall, which houses more
local specialty shops, the quaint Dewitt Café, and the local
Co-op grocer Green Star. Across the street is Dewitt park where you
can pick up some local produce at the Tuesday Farmer’s
The West end of the commons leads right out onto State St. The
first building you’ll notice is the historic State Theater
where you can catch a performance from, bands, dancers, comedians,
and much more. Further down the street you find dinners, bars,
restaurants and more local shopping.
Although technically not considered downtown Ithaca, this area
near Cornell offers an similar urban feel. Busy with students
studying at café and hanging out, you’ll find many
restaurants, shops, and bars.
