I read somewhere that the Utica Marsh is a good spot to site see as we are passing through to go to NYC? Do they charge for admission? How long should my family and I plan to spend there? Should we pack a lunch or do they have a a cafe? Some research says it's a wonderful area to spend the day with my family? I assume there are trails to walk or bike? Gy

We are visiting and we're hoping we could hit the marsh early, head to the brewery for a tour and then to the Adirondaks for some hiking all in one day? We are heading to NYC but heard about the wonderful things we could do in Utica in passing? Could we fit in 9 holes at Valley View as well? Want to make the most of our time in you beautiful area! We heard a lot about it coming from Toronto. Heard it's going to be the infrastructure of Nano Tech as well in an industry magazine! Good things happening in Utica!!!:

The Marsh is not so great but the Root Glen in Clinton on the Hamilton College Campus is amazing.

Hawaii's minor islands aren't that expensive, unless you're from Ny then that's off limits. The Governor, cops and a bunch of prison guard retirees killed all that lmao!
What if they flew out of Rome international airport? They could probably save some money there.

You might be able to get a tour of the whitesboro prison pretty reasonably.

Well my name isn't dave smith but on this forum I've accepted it as mine. To address your questions about Hamilton college. What standards in regards to what? People vacationing to see it? No it's not up to that standard. Very few colleges anyone will travel to see. It's a small liberal arts college that's decent but the country is riddled with them. Take union college here. Good school. Better location. National division one champions. Does anyone care? Nope.
Yes

Dave Smith - Union has an excellent Men's Hockey Program. However, I don't think you can say Union, located in downtown Schenectady, has a better location than Hamilton College. Not even you can believe that...

A million times better. Take an out of state college student. Do they want to be stuck in the cess pool utica region for four years or the capital district? Wheres the post graduation job opportunities? You're absolutely barking up the wrong tree about this. Oh and btw...schenectady is financially better off than your centerpiece of utica actually so save your piss and vinegar. Numbers don't lie.

...how can I forget about the number of students that Hamilton college actually retains after graduation. Very low.
