Trip with young kids

My husband, both in laws, 2 kids aged 6 years old and 15 month old along with nanny are visiting Ithaca for 2 nights for a wedding. The wedding will only be one evening and we are staying at the Homewood suites with the wedding being at the John Joseph Inn and Elizabeth restaurant.

We would have about a day or day and a half free - any activities we can do with young kids nearby?

Also any places to eat that are good? The baby would be in a stroller and doesn't walk yet. Thanks in advance.

Ithaca Sciencenter and the Cayuga Nature Center are two great options.

Hope lake lodge is a beautiful place and has a water park perfect for young kids. I believe they sell day passes. There is a state park with a beach next to it.

Marson -

There is no state park next to Hope Lake lodge ... perhaps it is a town or county park.

It might have been a town park. But there were hiking trails, beach with lifeguards and boats to rent. If you stay at the lodge you could walk there with no charge. There was a park fee if you came through the main entrance.
