Your Fabulous Falls Tour Itinerary

Your guide takes you to waterfall stops along Fall Creek and Cascadilla Creek, which border the beautiful Cornell University campus and provide gorgeous sites along its shores. Don’t miss these local favorites! The tour continues to the famous Cornell Suspension bridge—a pedestrian bridge suspended 138 feet above the water—followed by two other falls surrounding Collegetown and Cascadilla Park.

The tour culminates with an up-close-and-personal visit to Ithaca Falls, downtown Ithaca’s own 135-foot waterfall. In addition to exploring the beautiful waterfalls and campus, your guide weaves stories of Ithaca’s history and classic tales of Cornell throughout the tour. The end result is an intimate experience of our unique town, the perfect sight-seeing tour for people of all ages!
