Binghamton is a place that’s different. Built by historic innovators and fueled by a new class of creative visionaries, the Greater Binghamton communities are filled with rich history and unique experiences. We’re not just a destination. We’re an ongoing story you can be a part of. We’re not just a vacation. We’re a city to be explored. History is a big part of the experience here, but not in the museum sense. BING is not a collection of artifacts or a reflection of “the way things were.”
Some of the most popular places to check out in Binghamton are:
