We feel a community is only as strong as its education system. If you’re looking to move your family to the Syracuse area, there are 18 school districts in Onondaga County offering public, private and parochial education.
Spring, summer, winter or fall — Syracuse has plenty of fun activities including sports, festivals, museums, parks and recreation, music and theatre.
