It's summer and the time for day trips, weekend getaways and vacations.  I remember taking the trip to Lake George as a kid one year and then another year heading to Niagara Falls and they were some of the best and most memorable vacations I can remember.

This year, save money and time and do a stay-cation.

New York has over 10 great Amusement and Water Parks that should be on your list.

If water parks are you thing, and you want to try something different than Splash Down Beach, you can take the short drive to the Adirondacks to check out Enchanted Forest Water Safari.  Now that I mentioned Lake George, maybe you want to head that way and visit Six Flags.  They have a resort and packages that include hotel and stay for a nice price.

 

Of course there is always Darien Lake and Coney Island.

I Love New York has a list of locations, activities, lodging and more HERE
