Visitor Info

For Binghamton, NY and Gorgeous Washington Street Association

When you visit Binghamton, you're sure to catch some "Gorgeous" spirit! For those new to the area or visiting for the first time, Visitor Info will get you started.

Binghamton is located in "Upstate New York" in Broome County, a small city that Rod Serling called home. A picturesque area of rolling hills and valleys, located at the confluence of the Susquehanna and Chenango Rivers, just north of the Pennsylvania border. It's about three hours west of New York City and close to Finger Lakes Wine Country to the west, other regional/upstate attractions, and many universities and colleges (Binghamton University and Broome Community College in Binghamton, plus in Syracuse, Ithaca, Elmira, Corning, Cortland, Oneonta & more).

Many of the Gorgeous Washington Street Association's members-diverse group of local businesses, corporations, art galleries, museums, restaurants, arts organizations, and many others-are located in Downtown Binghamton and easy to find, being at the hub of many interstate highways. This includes from I-81, I-88, I-86/Route 17, plus Routes 7, 11, 12, and 434/Vestal Parkway which are the main roads that intersect Binghamton.

The Trolley does stay on route, so if you need a lift to the other side of town you can enjoy the historic scenery on your way!
