A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE

DINE... SHOP...CELEBRATE!  

MEMORIES ARE MADE HERE 

Cortland is a small, charming community where neighbors know each other by name. In fact, the city website offers an innovative “People Finder” service that helps Cortland residents, both new and old, connect with one another. It’s also a place where art, culture, museums and a slew of family-oriented festivals and programs offer you amenities that rival those you’d expect from a much larger city.

Centrally located at the Eastern gateway to the Finger Lakes region of New York State, Historic Downtown Cortland is an ideal year round destination. Filled with local boutiques and unique eateries, downtown is a thriving arts and entertainment district that cordially welcomes visitors to Shop, Dine and Celebrate in Cortland County.

Please join us in Historic Downtown Cortland on July 8th at the Taste of Downtown Cortland for the most anticipated celebration of the year. Indulge your tastebuds with a self guided tasting tour of downtown's finest cuisines.  Arrive early and kick off your weekend stay for Cortland County's Official Reunion Weekend at the Main Street Music Series.

To enhance and promote the commercial and cultural offerings of Historic Downtown Cortland.
