Walking Tour Downtown Syracuse

I fell in love with Downtown Syracuse around the time of was going through management training.

It was a sleepy Sunday afternoon, much like at the time of taking these pictures,   I was living out of my car and I felt like doing some exploring with my night off.

There isn’t much going on and not too many people on the roads on Sundays so I was free to roam around as I wished.

I enjoy all the local art and parks.  All the history in all the distinct sub-neighborhoods and what makes them stand out from each other.

I already covered part of downtown in my Creek Walk Tour.  Now let’s take a look at some of the other parts.

Remember, that this is a walking tour.  I may go back to explore certain places in greater detail like I did when I visited the MOST Museum.


Statue in Clinton Square.  This is the site of a lot of food festivals, The huge Christmas Tree Lighting, and where you can ice skate in the winter


Syracuse – Fayette Firefighters’ Memorial Park, one of downtown’s most beautiful parks

On a rainy day, check out the Onondaga Historical Museum

Metal Sphere Sculpture.


Historical Hotel Syracuse.  Recently restored by the Marriott Group.  I want to stay there so bad.  I hear it’s haunted

I was near the end of 2016 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
