What it’s like to live in Manlius, NY (Greater Syracuse Area):

Forbes Magazine rated our area as one of the top 10 places to raise a family. Our location allows living in a rural, slow-paced community while experiencing the beauty of all four seasons. In addition, there are highly sought-after primary and secondary school systems in private, public, and parochial offerings and a high-quality, comprehensive healthcare system that includes five hospitals, over 1,500 practicing physicians, and a full range of long-term care facilities.

CNY has every outdoor activity available for any season. During the winter, Syricusians enjoy activities like skiing, riding snowmobiles, or brushing off a lake to drill an ice-fishing hole. In Spring, Summer, and early Fall, you'll find people boating, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, white-water rafting, or hiking through breathtaking beauty. Syracuse's central suburbs are 20 minutes or less from the city's center, and it's usually a 20-minute drive to rivers and lakes, ski slopes and hiking trails, or rural solitude. Luckily, this means we don't have to waste time in traffic jams on the way to work in the morning – or heading home at night.

Downtown Syracuse recently boomed with apartments, condos, restaurants, and nightlife. This has attracted new digital companies, engineering firms, startups, and entrepreneurs enticed by urban excitement and the culture to satisfy diverse tastes. Lastly, If you are an avid traveler, Syracuse is less than a day's drive to New York City, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., and Boston. Syracuse Hancock International Airport also offers several nonstop destinations and connections to family and friends. It annually wins the award for the nation's best snow removal. The bottom line is that it's no surprise that U.S. News pegs Syracuse as one of the best metro areas to call home!
