Located in central New York, and designated as the geographical centre of this state, Syracuse is a bustling city of approximately 145,000 people famous for it’s athletics program at Syracuse University (the Orange) and, in winter, its record snowfalls. Situated just northeast of the famous Finger Lakes area, Syracuse is home to many wonderful things to see and do, making it a great destination for families.
Growing up in a city just a 2 hour drive from Syracuse, I’ve always been a fan of this great city. Over the years I have enjoyed a number of day trips to Syracuse to enjoy the New York State Fair (including concerts!), a picnic on Onondaga Lake, a concert at the Carrier Dome, and of course, some fun cross-border shopping.
Formerly known as the Carousel Center, this long-time retail shopping mall in Syracuse was rebranded as Destiny USA in August 2012. Destiny USA is a 2.4 million square foot destination-shopping complex that is home to more than 260 retail stores and nine entertainment venues, and is the sixth largest shopping centre in the United States.
This summer, Destiny USA’s nine entertainment venues are working together to give visitors a summer of fun and great new experiences AND helping them save money on their adventures (up to $100 per family of four). Destiny USA’s Summer Fun Day Pass gives you access to your choice of four of the nine entertainment venues, providing a day of fun for the whole family!
