Located in the southern central section of New York near the Pennsylvania border, Elmira is a charming city with a long history. First settled in the late 1700s, Elmira features a beautiful, historic downtown.

Harris Hill has seen the sport of gliding “take off” from its summit, and the hill is now the location of the National Soaring Museum, a museum dedicated to motorless flight. Elmira held the first National Soaring Contests between 1930 and 1946.
Another great Elmira attraction is the Mark Twain Golf Course. This 18-hole public course is the location of several golfing championships and includes a pro shop and a snack bar.
