I used to live in the area, but not for quite a while, so YMMV.

Ithaca is beautiful and a really nice college town. If you hike, go see Buttermilk Falls.

Also some excellent used bookstores around there, including my favorite in the world: The Book Barn of the Finger Lakes. It's about 20 minutes east of Ithaca, IIRC. It's literally a barn filled with books. If it's still the same owner, his name is Vlad and I'd swear he's read every book he has in the place. I used to buy lots of airplane and space history books from him, and talking with him about them was often the best part. I'm due for a visit too.
