Miscellaneous Information

 Getting There

Directions to the Rose Inn. For people who know their way around Ithaca already, get onto Triphammer and go north. It eventually runs into Route 34. Keep going north for a total of around 10 miles from Cornell. The Inn is on your right and you can't miss it. On your way back, don't forget the turn back onto Triphammer, because it's not an intersection.
Traveling in and around Ithaca.
There is an airport in Tompkins county, but planes there tend to be expensive. It may be more economical to fly into Syracuse and take the shuttle or a taxi.


There are rooms at the Rose Inn, where you are welcome to stay. Call (607) 533-7905 or e-mail roseinn@clarityconnect.com You MUST mention that you are an invited guest to the wedding.
I got a block of rooms at the Meadow Court Inn, at 529 S. Meadow St. on Rt. 13, across from Wegmans. The discount rate is $85 a night. Call (607) 273-3885 or 1-800-852-4014 for reservations, and mention either of our names.

Things to do

On the Cornell campus: 
Take an electronic tour of Cornell University. 
The Cornell Plantations - the rhododendron garden and the fragrant herb garden around the Plantations Headquarters would be especially beautiful in June. Their Saturday tours are free. 
The Johnson Museum of Art - free admission, and a spectacular view of Ithaca! 
Parking at Cornell - you only need to worry about permits if you come on a weekday.
"Cornell Plantations - the Arboretum, Botanical Garden, and Natural Areas of the University - offers free drop-in tours this summer. Tours meet at 11 a.m. and are scheduled for Saturdays from May 6 through September 2. Starting May 27, tours roam through the botanical garden, featuring a thematically-arranged, one-acre herb garden, a rhododendron collection, and eight other specialty gardens. The tour explores the theme of each garden and highlights selected plants in bloom. Tours meet outside the Garden Gift Shop and last 45 minutes to an hour. For more information, send email to plantationstours@cornell.edu or call (607) 255-2406."

There's also the Farmer's Market at 3rd St. off of Rt. 13 (Meadow St.) (look for signs) where they sell locally grown produce and beautiful crafts. Open 9AM-2PM on Saturdays and 10AM-2PM on Sundays. You have to try the waffle stand with fresh berry and whipped cream toppings (Greg prefers the chocolate liqueur whipped cream). Even if you're here only briefly, it's worth checking out. Here's a more detailed description.
