Life in Syracuse


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.


Sporting events throughout the year include Sky Chiefs baseball, fresh water fishing on Oneida Lake, Syracuse Crunch hockey games and many other sporting events at the colleges and universities in the area including Syracuse University Orangemen basketball and football at the Carrier Dome.


We like to celebrate the diversity of our culture with exciting festivals for everyone to enjoy. Irish and Polish Fest, La Fiesta Italiana, Taste of Syracuse, WinterFest and the annual New York State Fair allow everyone to indulge in delicious food while enjoying great music, games and other events.


If you’re a lover of music and theatre, Syracuse has an array of entertainment including the Syracuse Symphony, JazzFest, Syracuse Stage, Red House and many other venues which host a variety of concerts all year long. Art abounds in downtown at the Everson Museum of Art and art galleries and shops in the popular Armory Square area.


Surrounded by lakes, Syracuse has numerous magnificent parks and recreation areas. Onondaga Lake Parkway is filled with free family fun all year round including a skate park, playgrounds, tram rides, running trails and the holiday favorite, Lights on the Lake.


If you prefer to have a little bit of learning in your day, visit the Museum of Science & Technology (MOST) in Armory Square and home of the first IMAX Dome theatre in Upstate New York, or venture off to the Rosamond Gifford Zoo to see over 600 animals with both indoor and outdoor exhibits.
