This was our first visit to Ithaca and Cornell University. The reason for our stop here was to see Triphammer falls only we didn't realize the hydraulics lab had been demolished 6 years earlier so we were disappointed we didn't get to see what that looked like. The falls were still there so we were able to see them and... More

A beautiful, prestigious university campus with quite a bit of history and recognition. It's a great place to walk around or accessible for quickly driving through as well. The campus has museums as well as outdoor features like the Libe Slope Overlook or the suspension bridge. Very pretty, especially in fall.

Cornell has one of the most breathtaking campuses of any in the country. Even if you aren't a student, there is so much to do and see. There's the Johnson Art Museum, the Plantations, all of the varied architecture, and, of course, the Cornell Dairy Bar

My father went to Cornell but I'd never seen the campus so while in the area I decided to stop by to see the campus. The guy at the information booth was very helpful. A lovely campus.

One of the most beautiful and prestigious University Campuses in the United States. We're Lucky to have local access to all that the University has to offer to the Public, as well as academically to its students.

Do not purchase e-tickets. You have to still go to the ticket office and print out a physical ticket. It's a waste of time especially when you show up and the driver has to painstaking tell you, you have to go get a ticket. I am a driver and it has now become a huge frustration. This applies to all... More

Despite much of the campus being closed due to visiting on 4th July, it was still enjoyable to simply walk around campus and see all the historic buildings. The setting of this campus is also breathtaking!
