What To Do This Weekend in Syracuse: Downtown Living Tour 2011

This weekend is the fifth annual Downtown Living Tour – Saturday May 21 from 12pm-6pm.

This event is for you if:

  • You are planning to move to Syracuse and are looking for a place to live or learn more about the city
  • You are new to the are and want to familiarize yourself with your new town
  • You want to get to know more about Downtown Syracuse and get to know some of your neighbors
  • You want to learn more about the city’s revitalization projects
  • You want to take advantage of the special sales and offers at the local shops and restaurants downtown
  • You are interested in learning about the local history

The official tour of downtown Syracuse business and work spaces costs $12 and tickets will be available in the lobby of Dey’s Plaza from 11:30am to 4:00pm or you can purchase tickets ahead of time on the Downtown Living Tour’s website.

This event is for locals too!

So, you’ve lived in Syracuse for the past 10 years and know the area pretty well… why bother dealing with the parking and crowd? The city of Syracuse is working day and night to carry out a downtown revitalization plan to make your city more inviting and my guess is you haven’t spent much time downtown lately. The weather is supposed to be beautiful so why don’t you spend the afternoon admiring the revitalization progress, checking out the new shops, and taking advantage of the discounts many restaurants will be offering!

“We wanted to do something a little different for the fifth year,” Treier said. “We want people to see downtown as the neighborhood of choice not only to live, but to work.” – CNY Central
