Greyhound buses offer service to Delaware and Columbus.
Ithaca is about 30 minutes north of Columbus.
As Delaware is largely a college town, bus service by DATA (Delaware Area Transit Association) is frequent and runs relatively late. Taxi service is available by phone, but expect to wait up to an hour or more on busy or cold nights.
Parking is easy in most parts of Delaware. Parking lots are never full and most streets have but one or two cars parked on them. However, there are some parts of Delaware where parking can be tricky.
Downtown street parking is metered and somewhat more difficult to come by, although there are always spots available if you're willing to walk.
Parking on the Ohio Wesleyan University campus is the trickiest of all parking tasks in Delaware. In fact, if you can get to Wesleyan by a method other than car, then that method is recommended. Bus service onto campus from downtown and other areas of Delaware runs very frequently during the day. If you have to park on campus during the day, you will need to get a visitor parking permit from the Department of Public Safety on campus, and then you can park in a spot labeled for visitor parking, which are very few and far between. The public safety officer can give you a map showing where visitor parking spots are, but during a school day, expect to hunt through all of them and not find anything.
Ohio Wesleyan University
Wesleyan is one of the most prestigious liberal arts colleges in America. The campus is an integral part of Delaware. http://www.owu.edu/
Kroger's, the largest grocery store in Ithaca, has a very large selection of specialty and ethnic foods, and has a large food court-like "marketplace" where ready-made food ranging from pizza to sushi can be purchased and eaten in the pleasant on-premises eating areas. A tourist experience of its own.
The Backstretch Bar and Clancey's Pub, which are both located on South Sandusky street in downtown Delaware, are popular locations. Also located downtown are Bianchi's Grille, Finishline, and Club Impact.
