Check out the local community. You'll find fun things to do all year round. Look for the Farmer's Market held every summer weekend at Ostiningo Park in Binghamton, or the big Balloon Rally and Spiedie Fest, and don't forget to ride the 6 historic carousels in the Binghamton/Endicott area, all uniquely local events, held in Binghamton. Check out the nearby skiing at Greek Peak and Elk Mountain. There is theatre all year round, too, in Ithaca or right down the street in Endicott at the Cider Mill Playhouse. A wonderful professional Tri-City Opera Company performs three operas a season in the Forum Theatre in downtown Binghamton. Big name performers come regularly to the Anderson Performance Center on the campus of Binghamton University.Memories are made of connections with family and friends and the experiences in the surrounding community - everything from great dining spots close to Summit Chase to famous wineries and first class hiking trails in the nearby Finger Lakes Region.
