Review of Binghamton, New York

Star Rating - 2/27/2011
I have lived in Binghamton for the past 11 yrs., my husband has been here all of his life. We enjoy live music, biking, and golf. This area has limited biking, several nice, inexpensive golf courses, and virtually no live music. We are able to enjoy the outdoors for approximately 6 months out of the year, the other 6 months are spent holed up in our home, and shoveling snow. We travel to surrounding smaller communities that have live music and more activities.
We plan on retiring in the next 3 yrs. and are working on our plan to relocate to a sunnier (winter months are heavily overcast more often than not), warmer climate.

Limited biking? Then you obviously are not a cyclist. One of the few things the Binghamton area has to offer is LOTS of opportunities for cyclists. From the relatively flat trails in Otsiningo or the Vestal Rail Trail to the hills to the north and south for the added challenge, if you can't find a variety of places to bike, you are not looking hard enough. I've biked 2000 miles this year, and in every single ride, I have done at least one new road. In Castle Creek alone there are literally hundreds of miles of great riding roads in close proximity.
