Drive east from Syracuse, heading out of Dewitt on Highbridge Road, and you'll arrive at the lovely town of Manlius. The great thing about Manlius is that there's something for just about everyone. High quality of life is evident in the little town's safe streets and friendly neighborhoods. The school district is unmatched in its respect for education. And its local parks and attractions are unique discoveries you just won't find anywhere else. Come explore the charming community of Manlius... your next home might be waiting just around the corner.
The Village Centre is a local favorite for its indoor gym and auditorium (which hosts sponsored events). There's a softball and soccer field, an amphitheatre, and a playground there as well. The newly refurbished Manlius Library is another must-see. Manlius is also home to Stickley, manufacturer of collector quality furniture since 1900, and on Stickley Road, there's a beautiful recreation building perfect for special events.
Probably the nicest place to just sit and relax in town is the famous Swan Pond that's been around for years. Located in the middle of the village, the Fish Hatchery offers a unique view of different varieties of trout in various stages of growth, as well as a large walking trail system. And if you ask any locals, they'll tell you about Suburban Park, an amusement park from days gone by, that once attracted visitors from all over the state, now an office park.
