As early as possible on Sunday morning would be your best bet.

Why is that a bad weekend? My husband and I were planning on heading to the area on Labor Day weekend so just wondering if there is something going on and times and areas we need to avoid?

IndyCar and IndyCar Lights races at The Glen racetrack that weekend, returning for the first time in several years. Tons of people in town for the race, in addition to the usual tons of people for the holiday weekend.

Thank you! So would you recommend staying near one of the other lakes and nearby towns? We are thinking of checking out parks by Ithaca but not sure if we would want to stay right around Ithaca or not.

Why would you not want to stay right around Ithaca?

There is plenty to do and the parks there are amazing.

We are not at all opposed to Ithaca! We want to hike around there and then want to grab dinner and drinks and maybe check out some shops, so we may just stick right around town.

Ithaca would be a great choice. The Commons has some great shopping and the Farmers Market is one of the best in the country.
