Q: What’s within Driving Distance for a Weekend Escape?

Written by Margaret Hibma

A: If you have a car, there are plenty of options for a weekend of fun on a budget. Nearby amusement parks include Darien Lake, just outside of Buffalo, and the Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom in Lake George.

The nearby cities of Syracuse and Rochester -- also college towns -- always have something going on.

Love baseball? The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, is a perfect place to spend a Saturday.

Niagara Falls is also roughly three hours away, while New York City, Toronto, and Philadelphia are all approximately four hours from Ithaca.
