Our guide to Syracuse, NY

The Lexa City Editor here. Many of you know I grew up in Charleston, but you maybe don’t know this I was born in Syracuse, New York.

We moved to Charleston when I was two, so it really is home, but i ended up going back to attend Syracuse University for my baccalaureate + part of my family still lives in the region.

Although I love everything Charleston has to offer, there was just something special about autumn in Syracuse. The crisp, fresh air, the changing leaves, the fall traditions – I really felt the change of seasons + the the importance of new beginnings.

Act like a local following this fall getaway guide in Syracuse.

Why go?

  • Visit Green Lakes State Park with two glacial lakes + 10 miles of trails. It’s a great way to get some fresh air and experience.
  • Check fall foliagewhich usually starts in September. Looked at ESF SUNY Guide to Fall Colors in Upstate New York.
  • Try to enter the autumn spirit? no problem. There is a lot of fall festivals for the whole family to choose.
  • There is no lack of pumpkin patch around townbut City Editor Lexa recommends pumpkin hollow. Although she might be a bit biased considering she grew up going here.
