Go Orange!! Have we got any Syracuse Orange ‘Cuse fans in the house? Syracuse Orange is the nickname used by the athletic teams of Syracuse University, in Syracuse, New York. One of their athletic teams, the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team, is a very well-known NCAA team, who recently made it to the 2013 Final Four Basketball Championships.

Did you know that there is so much more to Syracuse than just great college sports? Well there is! Syracuse, New York is a bustling city with a population of just over 660,000, located a short 1 1/2 hour drive south of the Hill Island, Ontario border crossing on Interstate 81.  Situated in the heart of the Finger Lakes region, Syracuse boasts a brand new 2.4 million square foot shopping destination called Destiny USA, a zoo, a science and technology centre, the Empire Expo Centre, museums, boat cruises and so much more! Each year, Syracuse is also the host of The Great New York State Fair.

You can probably tell I’m quite passionate about Syracuse, New York.  I have been lucky enough to visit Syracuse a few times in my life, and enjoyed each trip to this great city.  That’s why I’m excited to be able to be able to take part in this fantastic giveaway hosted by my friend Lyne from the Ottawa Mommy Club.  She is offering up a fun family getaway for 4 to Syracuse, New York.  Be sure to check out her post all about her recent family trip to Syracuse…and enter for a chance to win your own family getaway to the ‘Cuse!  Good luck House Mates!!
