215 Foot WaterfallFlag review
If you're traveling with small children and would like to see a huge and impressive waterfall without hiking trails, Taughannock Falls is a great option just outside of Ithaca. There is an observation area very close to the road. Just a few stairs, and you're in for an amazing view! There are plenty of trails that will get you up close, but with a 20 month old, this made more sense for us and provided a quick but impressive photo stop. The park also offers camping options along Cayuga Lake.
Tips for Families
Visit the Ithaca Children's Garden just down the road in the direction of the town for another family-friendly stop that doesn't take up the entire day.

Time your visit so you can visit the Ithaca Farmers' Market (a family friendly attraction of its own right) for lunch.
