Lots of wineries and craft brewers. Check out the region for a fun weekend getaway. We went to Ithaca for a concert and thought we'd stay to check out wine country in New York State.

Yes, you will want a DD or transportation. There are a bunch of wineries in a 10 mile radius or so, but it is kind of rural and not many places right nearby to stay.
