We'll all miss those lazy summer days, but you can look forward to basking in the beauty of fall at the University's Nature Preserve. Peak time for that must-have Instagram photo is the second week of October, when the fall foliage is at its finest.

If you're looking for some sweet treats, head to one of many local orchards for apple picking -- and even apple cider donuts! Don't forget to leave an apple for your professor; an apple a day keeps the C's away! 

Chow down on some wings

Binghamton Wingfest is an annual tradition where local vendors put their skills to the test, preparing countless varieties of wings to crown one competitor as the champion. Decide for yourself and attend this year's event for a small fee.
