Family Fun this winter!
Inside, outside and underground, family fun is BIG all winter.
From dazzling hot-glass shows at the Corning Museum of Glass, to wild mountain coasters at family-friendly resorts like Holiday Valley
and Greek Peak
, to a cool boatride 156 feet below the Earth's surface at Howe Caverns, New York is a wonderland of winter fun!
New York’s family-friendly ski mountains
make it easy to enjoy the great outdoors together. From the Catskills, just north of New York City, to the western Chautauqua-Allegheny region, you’ll find plenty of trails for beginner and intermediate skiers
Many ski mountains extend the fun with cross-country trails, sleighrides, snowtubing
parks and kid-friendly events
. Slopeside accommodations range from cozy inns to all-inclusive resorts. Check out Ski Areas of New York
for information on 4th grade deals
and budget-friendly packages and ski areas across the state.
There’s lots of fun indoors, too! Make a splash in the giant indoor waterpark
at Six Flags Great Escape Lodge, near Lake George. Explore outer space in the planetarium
at Troy’s Children’s Museum of Science & Technology in the Capital-Saratoga region. Step into Sesame Street or walk through an indoor butterfly garden at the Strong National Museum of Play
in Rochester. The Long Island Aquarium
hosts themed family sleepovers, like “Butterflies and Bugs” in February and “Penguins & Pajamas” in March.
