194. Downtown Walking Tour

downtown tourA few months ago, when the weather was chilly and the sky was gray I found myself in Armory Square on a Sunday…this particular Sunday it felt like the city was a ghost town…what’s up with that, Cuse?

A friend of mine & I began to walk all over town, until we came across the Historical Association, where we picked up a pamphlet and took a self-guided walking tour of Downtown.

This was probably one of the most interesting afternoons I’ve had in a very long time.

This book, which is put together well with descriptions of 71 buildings and a map of downtown, guides you to all the landmarks. It explains abut the Hotel Syracuse, The MOST and how it used to be an Armory, it gives detailed information about the inside of some of the oldest buildings in Syracuse…it’s really quite amazing.

I was in awe of this great walking tour, it really was fanatastic.

The weather this weekend is expected to be beautiful, what better than to stop by the Onondaga Historical Association and pick up a walking tour booklet and give yourself a history lesson!

Tip: The packets can be picked up at the front table in the entry way of the Onondaga Historical Association

location: Downtown Syracuse
