8 Beautiful Spots to Visit in New York State This Winter

New York is well-known for its city-life and a variety of cultural activities that many enjoy throughout the warmer months. However, the beautiful state of New York offers plenty to do during these cold days of winter. Instead of binge-watching your favorites shows every weekend, plan a trip to visit New York state instead.

Here are eight spots in New York state that will bring you and your family plenty of joy and memories this winter.

Ski the Adirondacks

Whether you are a novice or an expert skier, Whiteface Mountain, located in the Adirondacks, is the perfect winter getaway this year. It offers the steepest drop east of the Rockies along with more family-friendly slopes so all levels can enjoy the beauty and thrill of the mountains. While there, take a side trip to the Olympic Sports Complex to see where winter athletes competed in two past Olympic games.

Visit Oheka Castle

The Hamptons isn’t the only place that offers breath-taking architecture on Long Island. Oheka Castle sits in the middle of the north shore and was originally built in 1919 for Otto Khan. This castle is complete with 127 rooms, a French-inspired garden, and eight reflecting pools. After $40 million worth of renovations, it is well worth the visit.

Learn how to blow glass

The Corning Museum of Glass offers live glass blowing demonstrations, in addition to making your own glass. You can enjoy a variety of glass exhibits and programs like Journey to the Moon: How Glass Got us There and Glass Snow Family.

Try snowkiting

Snowkiting is an adventure sport growing in popularity. Individuals can take lessons at the New York Kite Center on Long Island to learn how to navigate the wind.

Visit Buffalo’s Corner Taverns

There are ten taverns in Buffalo, New York that keep the area’s history of prohibition and Polish-American life alive. Each one offers its own unique experience and ambiance for visitors to enjoy.

Pretend summer is here

If summer and waterparks are your preference, visit an indoor waterpark in New York State! Cascades Indoor Waterpark offers 84-degree weather year-round and is a great family escape that lets you enjoy a wave pool, waterslides, and plenty of activities for everybody in your family.

Zipline in the Catskills

Visit Hunter Mountain to see the Catskills from above on the longest, fastest, and highest zipline in North America. Tours start at 600 feet above the ground and reach speeds of 50 mph, making it the perfect reason for adventure-seeking individuals to visit New York State.

Enjoy your backyard
