Stay near the best things to do in Corning

Called America's Crystal City, Corning has a rich history that is visible in Market Street's beautifully restored buildings, just steps from Radisson Hotel Corning. Make the 12-mile commute from the ELM airport, and then stroll through the picturesque town square, which is filled with unique shops and a variety of restaurants. If you're a history buff or want to enjoy educational fun with your kids, our hotel is just half a mile from the world-famous Corning Museum of Glass. You can also spend the day at the Rockwell Museum, National Soaring Museum, or Finger Lakes Boating Museum, all within easy reach of our hotel. For fun things to do outside, play a round of 18 at Willowcreek Golf Club or explore the Spencer Crest Nature Center, featuring outdoor exhibits and scenic trails. Need a weekend getaway? The city is especially popular at Christmastime and during the four-day GlassFest in the spring.
