Immerse yourself in Ithaca's distinctive cultural and civic life at the award-winning Ithaca Commons. Located in the heart of downtown Ithaca, The Commons, a four-block pedestrian area, is home to an eclectic collection of independently owned and operated shops and boutiques, gift shops, restaurants, art galleries, and entertainment venues.
This wonderfully walkable space includes the Sagan Planet Walk, a scale model of our solar system dedicated to American astronomer, and long time Ithaca resident, Carl Sagan. There is also a welcoming playground, beautifully designed Raimondo DeVincentis Water Fountain and outdoor entertainment space at the Bernie Milton Pavilion.
Located about 1/4 mile from the Hotel Ithaca, The Commons is a great place to stroll, grab a bite and enjoy the diversity of Ithaca.
