“Beautiful falls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

Falls are very accessible from the road and very pretty, Close to another waterfall, Cascadilla Gorge as I remember.

“Amazing Falls”

Right in the middle of Ithaca. Nice historic area. Easy access to the falls. Falls are so great. Decent parking area. Can walk right up to the falls.

“Beautiful”

Ithaca area is just beautiful...full of natural wonder and falls etc. I live around here and unfortunately sometimes I take these things for granted.

“A spectucular sight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Having fimed a fishing show at this location and using it as one of my atlractions while doing guided bus tours, I know of no other city that can brag about it's water falls and natural beauty. From fishing, to hiking and photography, the Ithaca Falls is a must stop on a trip to Ithaca. Above the falls, to the left, one can view Carl Sagan's former home; and in the neighborhood, Alex Haley was born. Ezra Cornell's home lies just a short distance to the north on Lake St. Each season brings a different view.

“Only waterfall within city limits”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

I live just a short walk from the fall so I go there frequently in all seasons and weather. It,s just a short walk from the side walk but walking shoes are best if you want to get close to the falls, otherwise, the falls can be admired from the Lake St. Bridge over-looking the river. Beautiful in all seasons. My favorite time to view is during very cold spells in winter when the falls are decorated with ice. During the sultry days of summer, when the air lies hot and heavy, you will find many of the locals visiting to take advantage of the cooler temps and refreshing air.
