Ithaca is Gorges. This is the city's motto and while it alludes to the many gorges and waterfalls here, it could very well mean that the city is gorgeous. Ithaca is home to 30,000 people and Cornell University, as well as a veritable list of attractions and activities that are reasons enough to get on a charter bus in Ithaca, New York and visit the city.
