Welcome to One of America's Best Towns

Known as the "Crossroads of New York State," Syracuse is a vibrant and bustling metropolitan area that offers an exceptionally high quality of life to the more than 143,000 people who call it home. Centrally located at the intersection of two major New York State routes, Thruway and I-81, living in Syracuse means never being too far away from the state's biggest attractions.

But, if we're being honest, there's plenty of attractions within city limits. From the rolling hills, flat plains, lakes, and streams, to the never-ending array of fun things to do on the weekends, this is a city unlike any other. Diverse cultures have come together to create a truly unique environment, one that's perfectly complemented by a local government system that goes out of its way to constantly improve life for its residents. Need any additional reasons to pack your bags and relocate to Syracuse? You've come to the right place.
