Millennial family travel through New York State

October 11, 2019 Visit New York No Comments Email Email

Millennial families are more diverse than ever and are leading the travel growth in our society today. Seeking out new destinations and activities to reshape the family travel landscape, millennials are allowing their kids to immerse themselves in the trip planning process basing their decisions on when they want to travel and what activities peak their interest. We’re here to remind you that a New York State getaway is all you need to enjoy the weather, nature and each other.

Here’s our list of amazing activities for Millennial Families to experience this fall in New York State:

· Experience a Cave Excursion at Howe Caverns

Head underground at Howe Caverns to Howe’s Signature Rock discovery tour for an exclusive two-hour cave excursion that promises to ‘reveal the mysteries’ of the caverns that haven’t been open to the public in centuries. Or take a traditional tour that allows you to walk and boat trek through the cave. Add a little extra fun to your visit with a stop at the Adventure Park’s aerial ropes course and zipline!

· Not-So-Scary Halloween Fun

Grab your favorite costume and embark on a trick-or-treating adventure through the Seneca Park Zoo. Keep your expectations high for Scarerial Adventures at Bristol Mountain where haunted ziplines, bridges, and the ropes course will take you on a spooky (but not scary) flight through the night sky. Hop aboard the Halloween Trolley Express and enjoy corn mazes, live music and fall delights at The Great Pumpkin Farm Fall Festival.

· Bike Along the Historic Erie Canal

Grab your water bottle and head to the Erie Canalway Trail to explore the 400-mile cycling trail and discover Revolutionary War sites and experience the beauty of New York State’s most unique cycling route.

· Float Amongst the Clouds in a Hot Air Balloon

Take a once-in-a-lifetime hot air balloon ride over New York State with Southern Tier Balloon Tours offering hot air balloon tours from Otsiningo Park in Binghamton, or with Balloons Over Letchworth with tours above Letchworth State Park. Experience the spectacular foliage or the wintry landscape from above.

· Take a Fall Foliage Train Ride

Ride through rolling farm fields and colorful forests on the Fall Foliage Train route and enjoy two hours of scenic views on the Cooperstown & Charlotte Valley Railway. Or hop aboard the two-hour Pumpkin Patch Train Ride, where every child who rides will get a free pumpkin to take home.

· Camp Out Under the Stars in the Catskills

Gunks Campground, also known as Sam Pryor Shawangunk Gateway Campground is an ideal spot for a family camping trip, with over 50 campsites across 50 acres and is a huge attraction among campers. Plus you’re perfectly located next to great hiking trails that lead to beautiful waterfalls like Sam’s Point Preserve that allow hikers to peek at Verkeerderkill Falls, the 187-foot waterfall.

· Wine and Dine with the Whole Family

Harbes Family Farm in Mattituck offers an experience the whole family can enjoy. Harbes Vineyard allows the adults to unwind and taste some of the best wine Long Island has to offer while Harbes Barnyard Adventures keeps the kids busy with hayrides, apple and pumpkin picking, corn mazes and delicious cider donuts to munch on.
