Rain or shine, there's always something to do in Syracuse. Don't let a rainy day stop you from soaking up the best in entertainment. Stay dry and warm, and check out our top picks for indoor fun! 


Movie with a Twist

Catch a flick at the Movie Tavern where movies meet restaurant service right from your recliner seat, and trade popcorn for a gourmet burger (but we won't judge you if you get both). For another unique movie experience, catch a film in IMAX at the Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science and Technology. Get in the holiday mode with their The Polar Express pajama parties!


Explore Book & Record Collections

Grab a warm coffee and discover your next reading or listening treasure at one of two crowd-favorite used book stores in the Eastwood neighborhood. Books End and Books & Melodies have numerous rooms filled with books and music. Both spots are perfect places to browse and hide out from the rain. 


Escape Rooms

Escape the weather while you try to escape a pharaoh's tomb at 5 Wits or try your luck at one of the many rooms at Escape the Mystery Room, both located inside Destiny USA. 



Roam one of our many museums and learn something new. History lovers can visit the Erie Canal Museum, Onondaga Historical Association, Ska-nonh Great Law of Peace Center or the Matilda Joslyn Gage Home. Art lovers will enjoy the Everson Museum of Art or ArtRage


Culinary Experiences

Nothing is better than a rainy day spent inside eating classic comfort food done to perfection or taking your taste buds on a new adventure. Check out our post from earlier this year on 8 Restaurants to Try Today!
