Fun Fact about the Syracuse area …did you know… …that Syracuse Stage was founded in 1974, and has produced more than 300 plays in 40 seasons.  In addition, it maintains a vital educational outreach program that annually serves over 30,000 students from 24 counties.  Many of America’s leading actors, directors and designers work and/or have worked at Syracuse Stage including: Tony Award-winners Lillias White, Chuck Cooper and Elizabeth Franz, Emmy recipients Jean Stapleton, Sam Waterston, John Cullum, James Whitmore, and Ben Gazzara. These visiting artists are supported by a staff of artisans, technicians, educators and administrators who are responsible for all facets of the theatre.  For this holiday season, Syracuse Stage will be performing the family classic A Christmas Carol, which opens this weekend.

Please find this week’s edition of the Friday Facts here.

Skaneateles TripAdvisor #1 Hotel

Skaneateles TripAdvisor #1 Hotel

 

 

This was our first time here, and the hotel was beyond what we expected. The snacks were complimentary, linen clean, bedding soft (not the cheap kind), and the jacuzzi was GREAT! They provided a rubby ducky and some candles (which I like since most places don’t allow you to have candles) and the bungalows felt private. The only downside was that the jacuzzi ran out of hot water so we had lukewarm water, but besides that.. the place was spacious, had music playing when we entered, and check out was EASY! I would definitely recommend this place and if I do go back, will book again!

Room Tip: We stayed in the bungalows facing the road and it was just fine, not too noisy.
