South Glens Falls, New York- A Feeling of Home | My Family Travels

   South Glens Falls, New York is a wonderful vacation choice! There are so many different things to do and places to go that it's crazy! In fact, South Glens Falls is located in upstate New York right along the Hudson River and gives you enough space so that your aren't that close to the city or to the mountains! South Glens Falls is a great place to have a fun-filled vacation!

   South Glens Falls itself is a small village with just enough places to give you that feeling of home. You can go get some ice cream at the local ice cream shops like Pat & Jerry's or Mr. Bills. If you want to go bowling, Spare Time is the place to go! There are also places that you can go for peaceful walks, like the Betar Byway. If you visit in March, catch the local high school which does a fundraiser, called the Marathon Dance, where almost every student in the school gets involved and all of the money goes directly to people in the community who really need it! It is one of the largest events that shows outstanding community pride! If you travel just north of the village, you reach Glens Falls where you can go to the Civic Center and watch a concert or maybe even catch a sporting event! But the fun doesn't stop there!

   Travel north through Glens Falls and it will bring you to the Queensbury/Lake George area. Here you can go to many restaurants, visit the Aviation Mall, play some mini-golf, and have a shopping day at the outlet malls on the Million Dollar Half-Mile! Then for the night, have a fun time at the drive-ins! Give yourself a day off and take the whole family for a fun-filled day at Six Flag's Great Escape & Splashwater Kingdom and even their Great Escape Lodge! Keep going north and you will run into many hotels. The reason for this is because you are venturing further into the Lake George region where you can go to many different water parks, mini golf courses, and even more shopping! Along with many different places for entertainment located on Beach Road in Lake George, you can even aboard a cruise ship for an hour or two! But still, that's not all!

   Go back to South Glens Falls and drive south. You are now on your way to the Saratoga Springs region! On the way, take a stop at the Wilton Mall! Make sure the first thing you do when you get to Saratoga is take a walk through Congress Park. There you can see beautiful artwork like the Spit and Spat water fountains. Then, visit even more stores along Broadway! Seeing as how Saratoga is filled with horse statues, take a trip to the Saratoga Racetracks and then if you feel like it, take a trip to the Racino Casino! But, make sure before you leave you stop by the gorgeous Yaddo Gardens where you will see absolutely magnificent flower gardens! How fun!
