Located in the center of New York near the southern shore of Lake Ontario, the Syracuse Metropolitan Area is the region’ s major metropolitan center.

Syracuse was founded on one of the most beautiful areas of New York State, dotted with hills, valleys, lakes and streams. The city sits on the shore of lakes Onondaga, is within 20 miles of the beautiful Finger Lakes region and 30 miles from Lake Ontario. In the summer you don’t want to miss the Great New York State Fair, and in the winter you’ll find no better snow for making snowmen and snow forts.

Syracuse is home to nearly 150,000 residents, with the greater metropolitan area boasting a population of over 600,000. Syracuse offers big-city amenities with a small-town feel: quality healthcare, transportation, restaurants, a symphony orchestra, amateur and college sports teams, museums and art galleries, rivers and hundreds of parks.

Syracuse has been highly ranked for accessibility based on daily commuting time, public transportation availability, interstate highway convenience, and air service and passenger service. It’s home to many great schools and universities. And if you’re looking for an overall seal of approval, consider that in 2010 Forbes rated is one of its top ten places to raise a family.
