In Cortland For Jets Training Camp – Our Top 5 Fun Things to Do in Cortland

We first wrote this list in 2011 when the Jets cancelled their training camp in Cortland. Now the Jets return annually to the Central New York city. If you’re town for camp or anytime, here is our list of 5 other fun activities in Cortland County.

The 50 Mile Garage Sale

Held during the final week of July, the 50 Mile Garage Sale follows the path of NYS Route 90 from Montezuma to Homer in Cortland County. With a 50 mile trek through some of the most beautiful country in Upstate NY from the Finger Lakes to the hills of Cortland County, the finds at the garage sales won’t be only treasures you’ll take home from this trip.

Hope Lake Lodge Indoor Water Park

Hope Lake Lodge, on the grounds of the Greek Peek Ski Resort, is the home to Cascades Indoor Water Park. With a wave pool and indoor water slides like the rapids, you’ll drenched like a Jet player after a two-a-day workout.

Celebrate the Music of Ronnie James Dio

Hard Rock musician Ronnie James Dio, who was a member of the bands Rainbow and Black Sabbath, grew up in Cortland. Dio was a graduate of Cortland High School and a member of the school’s hall of fame. A street off of Central Ave in Cortland is named in his honor, Dio Way.

Find Upstate NY’s Best Coffee

Cortland is a college town. And college students need coffee. Coffee Mania roasts their own beans and java lovers say this little drive-through shop does the best jo around. Coffee Mania is TripAdvisor.com’s top restaurant in town.

Brockway Truck Show

Held in mid-August, the streets of downtown Cortland are turned over to the trucks of yesteryear when the Brockways invade for the Brockway Truck Show.
