Salina and particularly Liverpool are bustling areas with plenty of shopping options. For grocery shopping, Liverpool has three Wegmans supermarkets (on West Taft Road, Oswego Road and Route 31). Top’s Friendly Markets has stores in the neighboring communities of North Syracuse, Dewitt and Clay, as well as five stores in Syracuse. For retail shopping, part of the enormous DestinyUSA complex is in Salina. Liverpool has a Target store and a Walmart on Highway 31, where you’ll also find a Barnes and Noble bookstore and a Bed, Bath & Beyond store (among others).
The Liverpool Central School District, which has nine elementary schools, three middle schools and a high school, covers most of Salina; the Lyncourt Union-Free School District is a small district that serves about 350 students in pre-K through eighth grade. Lyncourt has an agreement with the Solvay Union-Free School District that allows students to attend high school there. For hospitals, all of the county’s facilities are in Syracuse, a quick drive from Salina. The Salina Free Library is on Belmont Street in the hamlet of Mattydale. Residents here also access the Syracuse libraries.
