Last week we went to Ithaca, NY. My wife is a teacher and they have a promotion every year over February break called "Ithaca Loves Teachers". Ithaca gives teachers and their guests discounts at many of the area restaurants and other retailers (ski resorts, museum, wineries, etc.). Ithaca has much to offer. It is on the Cayuga Lake wine trail, part of the Finger Lakes wine region, which is known for their award winning white wines.. My wife and I stopped at a few of the local wineries. If you happen to go, make sure you check out Lucas Vineyards. Ithaca is also known for their gorges, waterfalls and state parks. We enjoyed cross country skiing at Hammon Hill State Forrest. Ithaca is a fun place for a weekend getaway!
