Located in the Adirondack Mountains, the Lake George Area in New York is the perfect destination for your family reunion. Known as the “original vacation,” adventurists will love a day spent whitewater rafting on the Hudson and Sacandaga Rivers or fly among the clouds when you go parasailing over Lake George. The summer is ideal for wakeboarding, tubing, jet skiing, paddling and sailing. Reconnect with nature by hiking through the many parks and nature preserves in Lake George like the 44-acre Meadowbrook Preserve and visit the museum at Up Yonda Farm that features exhibits of native wildlife and has hands-on exhibits for children like archaeology digs. Families can also enjoy a bike ride through Warren County Bikeway and the 2.6-mile long Caroline Fish Memorial Trail.
For more family thrills, Six Flags Great Escape and Hurricane Harbor are a theme park and water park with rides and entertainment. At the Adirondack Extreme Adventure Course, enjoy 1.5 miles of treetop adventures and navigate aerial courses suitable for all ages and even go ziplining. Other outdoor activities in the region include mountain biking at Gore Mountain, fishing in Lake George and snowboarding and skiing in North Creek.
Don’t miss being entertained by cowboys, cowgirls and clowns at Painted Pony Rodeo and a family horse ride at Ridin-Hy Ranch Resort and Circle B Ranch. For an authentic Adirondack experience stay at a dude ranch like 1,000 Acres or Roaring Brook Ranch where you can go riding through wooded areas and enjoy the luxuries of glamping complete with wi-fi and cable tv.
