Ithaca is another city which is surrounded by natural beauty. Huge waterfalls, scenic views, and lush gorges has helped popularize the term "Ithaca is Gorges." The hiking (and biking) is seemingly endless, with trails to Ithaca Falls and Cascadilla Gorge being a few favorites. The presence of Cornell University and Ithaca College contribute greatly to the city's culture, and provide Ithaca with a youthful feel. Although New York is not very tax friendly, and the cost of living is higher than the national average, many retirees feel that the area's benefits outweigh the costs. Ithaca has a few unique neighborhoods, starting with Cayuga Heights. This residential neighborhood is close to downtown, and has a bit of an older population than some of the more "college" neighborhoods. West Hill is another great choice, with quiet streets, and excellent views of Lake Cayuga. For those looking for a more youthful setting, South Hill has many Ithaca college students living off campus, and adds a unique culture to the area.
