Spring in Syracuse


Around here, you don't see spring — you hear it, feel it and taste it. Our unofficial kick off of the greenest season starts with the St. Patrick's Parade. And the grass just keeps getting greener from there. Think birdsongs, scent of earth, warm breezes and maple syrup.

Fall leaves in Central New York


Syracuse University football tailgate parties, hayrides out to the orchard, leaf peeping and haunted houses galore. Fall is a favorite around here — the kind of weather where you can pair shorts and a hoodie. Birkenstocks and socks are another story.

Bundle up and take a hike, dine fireside and savor the warmth and conviviality of your neighbors. We're all in this together. And that's a beautiful thing.
