Kids are delighted by the nineteen waterfalls that cascade down the gorge sides in this stunning park. Hike beneath the curtains of the falls, visit caves and swim in an Olympic sized swimming pool. Families can also fish for rainbow trout at Seneca Lake or Catherine Creek.
Jones Beach State Park is world-famous for its sublime beaches, which run for seven miles along the Atlantic. Fish, enjoy an ice cream on the boardwalk or play a round of miniature golf. Concerts animate the beach's theater but just surfing and sunbathing on the sand are blissful. There are also a number of playgrounds to explore.
Lofty mountains embrace this entertainment-packed state park, where you can paddle along the Hudson River or relax in a swimming pool. Visit the park's Trailside Museums and zoo, where geology exhibits, local history and live animals like turtles and salamanders fascinate the little ones. Ride the vintage merry-go-round, with its hand painted scenes of the park, or go wildlife watching and see bobcat, Canada goose and deer. An outdoor ice rink is a picturesque place to enjoy holiday cheer between October and March.
