Cross Country Moving Company’s Guide to Syracuse

Are you thinking about moving cross country? Perhaps you just graduated from university and feel the need to explore the States a little? Or maybe you want to start a family in a quiet, peaceful residential area with good schools? Or perhaps you are about to retire and wish to find a place to spend the rest of your days in? Whatever the reason behind your long distance relocation, we at Cross Country Moving Company are here to help. In fact, if you still haven’t decided where exactly you want to move, we have a suggestion – Syracuse, New York.

If you are skeptical about packing all your belongings and coming here, read on, and we just might convince you that Emerald City is the perfect place for you.

The People of Syracuse

People who live in Syracuse are called Syracusans, and there is about 144,000 of them, while around 660,000 call the city’s metro area their home. Syracuse is the fifth most populous city in the state of New York, right after New York City, Buffalo, Rochester, and Yonkers. The population of the city is relatively racially diverse, with white people making up for 56 per cent of the population, African Americans for 30 per cent, while the rest fourteen per cent is comprised of Asians, Pacific Islanders, Native Americans, and other races. Most people in Syracuse are of Irish, Italian, German, English, and Polish ancestry. A little over half of the population is religious, most of them being Catholics, followed by people of other Christian religions, Eastern Religions, and Islam.
Since Syracuse is pretty much the melting pot of a vast variety of cultures, religions, and races, you are bound to feel welcome here, regardless of your background story.

The Weather in Syracuse

The City of Syracuse belongs to the humid continental climate zone. You have probably already heard that Syracuse is famous for its snow – and the rumors are true. Syracuse gets around 115 inches of snow every year, which makes it the snowiest metropolitan area in the country. The largest recorded snowfall here was 192 inches! Don’t forget your winter clothes once you start packing for your relocation.While, yes, winters in Syracuse are pretty cold and snowy, its summers are very pleasant, with an average high temperature in July revolving around 82 degrees.
If you are unsure about how to fight the cold during snowy Syracuse winters, don’t worry. There are plentiful opportunities for you to have fun, despite the weather. Whether you feel like skiing, snowmobiling, tubing, building igloos, sledding, ice-skating, you are bound to find something to satisfy your needs. If you are, however, not a fan of outdoor activities during the winter, there are plenty of indoor opportunities as well. For example, you could visit the Destiny USA shopping mall , the sixth largest shopping venue in the States. And there is more to Destiny USA than just shopping. The mall is home to numerous indoor entertainment options, such as indoor rock climbing, go-carts, and golfing, to name a few. Another great indoor winter attraction in Syracuse is MOST (Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science and Technology), where you can watch movies, see exhibits, observe science demonstrations, or participate in all kinds of workshops.

Festivals in Syracuse

Winter is not the only time when there are things to do in Syracuse. The city hosts a number of phenomenal festivals year round. Some of the best festivals and events which you shouldn’t miss out on include:
- The Syracuse State Fair . This more than a century old festival attracts thousands of visitors each year. Carnival rides, cotton candy, concerts, and exhibits – everything you can imagine a State Fair should have – this one has it.
- The M&T Syracuse Jazz Festival . This event takes place every summer. It is a free outdoor festival in honor of jazz.
- The Polish Festival . Over sixty years old, this three-day festival is dedicated to celebrating all things Polish – their heritage, music, dancing, and food.
- The Syracuse Shakespeare Festival . Dedicated to one of the greatest writers of all times, this festivals takes place each year, but it also features a year-round acting workshop for children.

Getting Around Syracuse

Another great thing about the City of Syracuse is the fact that you can do without a car here. The city has several transportation lines (provided by Amtrak, Lake Shore Limited, and Maple Leaf), which makes commuting quite stress-free. Syracuse is also home to the Syracuse Hancock International Airport .
