The Greater Binghamton Convention & Visitors Bureau stands ready to welcome your groups and tours to our community! We trust that you will find this Group Tour Planner to be informative and helpful when planning your next excursion to Greater Binghamton!
From gently rolling hills to lush green valleys, Greater Binghamton offers big city feel with upstate appeal. There are endless opportunities for dining, entertainment, shopping, sightseeing, visiting attractions and more. With over 2,500 first class rooms you’ll be sure to find the perfect accommodations. Take a spin on one of our six antique wooden carousels (the largest collection in the world!) or a guided tour of several gold-domed or wooden churches. Experience a taste of SoHo at one of our numerous art galleries or studios along “Artists Row” or experience them all at one of our monthly “First Friday Art Walks.” Enjoy the decadent taste of our Spiedies, a chicken sandwich marinated in our locally crafted sauce.
History comes alive at our museums; The Roberson Museum & Science Center traces the origin of the Link Flight Simulation Blue Box that is still used today for pilot and flight training and features the Visitor’s Center which shows how our community grew and evolved through manufacturing. The Bundy Museum of History & Art features Bundy Time Clocks (the company that became IBM) as well as period artifacts and an African art collection. The Phelps Mansion Museum, a Civil War era mansion, will take you through Binghamton’s growth as a city. If you want to be a little more active there are numerous walking and biking trails, cross country skiing, hunting and fishing sites and more. Hit the links at one of our 15 public golf courses. Get back to nature on our Agri-Tourism tour options. The Windy Hill Candle Factory will show how candles are made and features over 300 scents of candles and an old-fashioned candy shop.
Love sports? Watch the pros play: AHL Binghamton Senators, AA Binghamton Mets baseball, Chris Thater Memorial Races, Dick’s Sporting Goods Open (PGA Champions Tour event) or the Levene Gouldin & Thompson Tennis Challenger. Spice up your tour with a unique festival or event, annual happenings include: Annual Crappie (ice fishing) Derby, Apple Fest, Arts & Crafts shows, Boo at the Zoo, Cider Mill, Deposit Days & Lumberjack Festival, Ethnic Festivals, Holiday Festivities, & the Spiedie Fest & Balloon Rally (an ABA Top 100 Event in 2006). You won’t want to miss the incredible fall foliage that New York State is famous for, you can even tour a working Cider Mill for an authentic fall favorite – cider & doughnuts!
