      Sarah Speers

      I grew up here and think its an awesome getaway for the city. Saugerties is a great friendly, historic town along the Hudson River and nestled next to the Catskill Mountains. Spend a day or two strolling the streets, exploring the Lighthouse, eating Krauses homemade chocolates and shopping in a bunch of antique shops. Then the next day head up to Woodstock, NY and see the hippie side of things- really artsy and chill area. But beautiful!

    • Jenny Layne Cardon recommended Montauk
      One of my favorite towns out East in Long Island... the Hamptons without the pretentiousness. Come here for fab dining, lobster rolls, beaches and a lovely drive. Head to Amagansett as well! My ... read more

      If you are into sustainable living, you could check out the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY for some peace, nature and good energy.

    • Liza Prado recommended Buffalo
      Buffalo, New York is a great part of the state to visit, especially in the summer months when the snow has thawed. There are tons of outdoor festivals, tours of the Frank Lloyd Wright homes in town, ... read more
      the Albright Knox Art Museum, a nice waterfront area, a small zoo, and of course, the chicken wings (The Anchor Bar is the classic but Duffs is pretty good too.). If you just want to poke around and people watch, head to Elmwood Street, which has a bunch of little shops, eateries, and green spaces.

      Julia P recommended Buffalo
      Buffalo is a funny little city just near Niagara, I'd say worth a stop if only to check out the original buffalo wings (at the Anchor Bar).

      Upstate New York is generally beautiful, although I'm not sure what standout locations there are. I'd look for a park to stop for a hike, actually.

    • Shaw Festival10 Queen's Parade, Niagara-on-The-Lake, ON L0S Canada
      Liza Prado recommended Shaw Festival
      The Shaw Festival is a superb theater company that presents plays by Bernard Shaw and his contemporaries. It has three different spaces, in three different parts of town to accommodate the number of ... read more
      plays presented each year. My favorite, by far, is the Festival Theatre--a modern space with clean lines and an outdoor area complete with fountains and lovely green spaces.

      If you have a babysitter (or if one of you needs a break)....

    • Liza Prado recommended Niagara-on-the-Lake
      This a charming little town that has maintained the architectural style of its 18th century roots. It has a bunch of craftsy boutiques, homey cafes and gourmet restaurants, and a good variety of ... read more
      accommodations. The best time of year to visit is summer-fall, when the flowers are in bloom and the Shaw Festival Theater is in full swing.

      This is just east of the Falls, on the Canadian side.

    • Niagara Helicopters3731 Victoria Avenue, Niagara Falls, ON L2E Canada
      Liza Prado recommended Niagara Helicopters
      A helicopter ride over the entirety of the falls, a portion of the Niagara River, and nearby parks is an amazing--and heart-stopping--way to experience the falls. A great option if you're looking for ... read more
      something a little different. The only bummer--it lasts just 12 minutes.

    • Butterfly Conservatory2405 Niagara Parkway, Niagara Falls, ON L2E Canada
      Liza Prado recommended Butterfly Conservatory
      This enclosed 'rain forest' is home to over 2,000 butterflies year-round. A lush, humid, place, just walking through it, you'll see all sorts of butterflies flitting by or landing on tropical flowers. ... read more
      Don't miss the Emergence Window, where butterflies break free of their cocoons and fly into the Conservatory. A very special place, for sure.

    • Keane recommended Niagara Falls City
      Sheer. Gushing. Power. That is what Niagara Falls is. It's as impressive (to me) as the Grand Canyon, except it's alive, moving, vibrant. I could stare at it for hours. I heard the Canadian side is ... read more
      much nicer than the American side, in terms of the view.

      Beautiful spot if you make it this far. You could stop into Toronto too :)

    • Liza Prado recommended Niagara Falls City
      The town of Niagara Falls definitely is kitchy--wax museums are prominent fixtures--but the falls themselves and the surrounding parks/area are spectacular. There is so much to do--from taking a boat ... read more
      ride near the falls, visiting 18th century forts, and stopping at the butterfly conservatory to wandering through the botanical gardens, wine tasting and catching a show at the Shaw Festival. Truly a vibrant part of the world.

      When you get to Niagara Falls, New York--cross the border! The Canadian side has lots more to do (and frankly, the view of the Falls is wildly better.)

    • Pro 2014
      Julia P recommended The Berkshires
      Gorgeous mountain territory in Western Mass filled with cozy New England towns and beautiful land. The summer sees the region filled with art, both at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival and Tanglewood.

      So, if you wanted to take a really circuitous route to Niagara, you could head due north to the Berkshires and then head west to Niagara. I really love this area, and each little town is filled with cute things to do. Definitely family- friendly as well.

    • Maid of the Mist5920 River Road, Niagara Falls, ON L2E 6V6, Canada
      Liza Prado recommended Maid of the Mist
      A ride on the Maid of the Mist is an absolute must. (And a sure fire hit at any age.) Basically, it's a boat ride from either the American or Canadian side that takes passengers so close to falls ... read more
      themselves--American, Bridal Veil, and Horseshoe--that you'll get totally soaked (unless, of course, you opt to wear the rain gear provided). The close-up views are spectacular too.....
