Family Friendly Activities in Upstate New York

Windham and other towns near Hotel Vienna offer a number of Upstate New York attractions and activities both parents and kids can enjoy during a visit. A few of these are practically down the street from our hotel at Windham Mountain: did you know this ski resort is also home to a family-friendly Adventure Park that features an ice skating rink, hills for tubing and a snowmobile park? Two 500-foot zip-lines, the park's newest attraction, and a Euro Bungee super-trampoline can also be found on-site.

Windham Theatre is a second option also in town. Treat your kids to a movie--and enjoy a Subway sandwich, pizza or ice cream afterwards. Three screens ensure you'll have a few options to choose from, but please note that the theater is only open Friday through Sunday, with matinees on weekends only.

During the summer months (mid-June through the beginning of September), Zoom Flume in East Durham is the best place for water-based fun. Between the park's many tube and body-slides (some are over 300 feet long) and wave pool, plus the lazy and wild rivers, swimmers of all ages and abilities will find the 20-minute drive from our hotel well worth it. Your group may also try the pair of zip-lines or attend a raptor show at the park, depending on when you visit.

Dolan's Lake and other lakes around the town of Hunter are equipped with picnic tables and BBQ grills--perfect for an afternoon of swimming, although these may be unattended. There are several activities in and around Windham, NY ideal for families staying at Hotel Vienna!
