Cast a line in Butternut Creek, whose 8 miles (13 kilometers) are stocked annually with trout for public fishing. Stroll or bike along the creek on one of the well-maintained paths and boardwalks.

Get adventurous and continue farther to connect with the 36-mile-long (57-kilometer) Old Erie Canal Historic Park, which meanders through the countryside to Rome, New York.

Examine the local mineral exhibit or enjoy the rotating local history exhibits put on by volunteers.

Meander around the brick school buildings of Le Moyne College, the second-youngest Jesuit college in the United States. Climb the hill and admire the Federal-style splendor of the 19th-century Dr. John Ives House and its grounds, including a barn and smokehouse, as you look out across the quiet hum below.
