No Plans For Spring Break? How about an Oswego Staycation!?

In our senior year as a SUNY Oswego students, my friends and I are taking a new approach to spring break, and that’s staying right here in Oswego!  Living off campus, the opportunity to remain in town seemed like the perfect chance to hit a few bucket list items from Oswego to Syracuse, while also being on a budget. Whether these plans will someday be applicable to your own spring break experience, or simply a way to fill some weekends while attending the university, here a few things we came up with to fill our time.


Weather permitted Outdoor Activities:

-Walking through Breitbeck Park

-Exploring Fort Ontario

-Hiking to The West Pierhead Lighthouse

-The Bluffs


Indoor Activities:

-Destiny U.S.A. & Wonder Works

-Ontario Orchards

-Red Sun Fire Roasting Co.

-Dino’s House of Burgers

-Bistro 197

-The Press Box


Many of these may be obvious staples of the Oswego and Syracuse experience, but at the same time they tend to be those things that we never seem to get around to! If anyone would like further help researching these suggestions and others, please feel free to contact me at! Happy spring break to all!
