I like how many people are friendly there and the amazing public schools. The people there are lovely and it's very close to many popular attraction such as the NYS fair and Destiny USA as well as having a very rural vibe, while being close to a city one. It's a very easy commute to schools and work. The only thing I would like more of are restaurants.

Manlius is a great place to live and raise a family. I feel fortunate that when we moved to the Syracuse area a few years ago that the realator suggested that we live in the Town of Manlius.

The Town offers 2 outstanding high schools: East Syracuse- Minoa High School and Fayetteville- Manlius High School.

The Manlius Town government is managed in a professional manner by its elected officials. I am not aware of any controversies that have existed while we have lived in the Town.

Town residents have all of the advantages of a bigger city being only 5 miles from the City of Syracuse with the opportunity to live in a family friendly and pet friendly suburban environment. The proximity of Manlius to Syracuse University allows my family to regularly attend football and basketball games.
Manlius is a cute, well-maintained, small town experience. Not very diverse. Village of Manlius is nice to walk around in.
