I took a small road trip this weekend to Ithaca, NY. I had only visited the area once before during the fall season, so it was nice to get to spend a little more time exploring at spring time. I love getting to look around and appreciate how this area looks different than the terrain I am use to seeing out West. One thing about Ithaca that was familiar to me was the slightly “hippie” vibe. After spending most of my adult life in Portland, OR or Arcata, CA, I find comfort in finding other towns with a similar feel.
