Cornell's reputation and academics are without doubt. However, the campus itself is not a tourist attraction. Apart from a couple eye-catching architecture like the Law School or the Statler, the school is just a collection of administrative and educational buildings like any other colleges. Parking is also difficult to find.

Cornell is a beautiful place. It's an ivy league college that looks and feels like a big state school. The best of both worlds. There are beautiful plantings, nice people, and fun things in the area. It's a long drive from everywhere but worth it

With such a large and diverse campus, be sure to check out the exhibits in the library and elsewhere on campus. You won't be disappointed. This is a top-notch university.

Cornell is perched on one of the highest points of Ithaca- the campus, the gorges that surround it, the open spaces and botanical gardens- amazing! Don’t forget to climb the bell tower and hear the chimes, visit the Johnson art museum, Beebe Lake, and the botanical gardens just to mention a few lovely sites. It is a pleasure to stroll and spend time here.
