Downtown Corning offers a little something for everyone with museums & galleries, pubs, places to try your hand at making chocolates, painting or glassmaking, and plenty of places to pamper yourself.

Corning was voted "The Most Fun Small Town in America!" by Rand McNally for so many reasons!

Discover what to do in Corning's Gaffer District. Spend the day downtown in the Gaffer District and explore all the Corning attractions. Gaffer offers places to shop, eat, learn, and play! Find your way through the maze along Centerway Bridge, then visit the Corning Museum of Glass and the Rockwell Museum. Finish the afternoon with homemade ice cream. Make it a date night! Head downtown for a romantic dinner in one of Gaffer District's fabulous restaurants and then catch a movie at the Palace Theater. Meet your friends in Corning after work, celebrate the end of the day with a refreshing cocktail, wander through one of our art galleries, and indulge yourselves with a dessert from the Chocolate Trail. Corning's Gaffer District is a beautiful downtown filled with endless reasons to #exploreCorning. We are excited that we are rated as a very walkable downtown!
