Saugerties NY, July 2018

“Fun in the sun” is a cliche that never gets worn.

That’s probably because fun in the sun never gets old. Nothing puts a smile of the face of a holiday maker than the promise of a sunny day. Extend that to the promise of an entire sunny season and we have cause for all round happiness.

New York State is all dressed up for fun in the sun and there’s a destination for every fascination.

Summer is synonymous with water. New York has this in plenty, from the sandy beaches along the Atlantic coast, on lakes, from Lake George to the Thousand Islands to the many water parks across the state. Summer also means hiking and the state offers over 2000 miles of trails graded by ease of hike; and extending to mountain climbs and bicycle trails and balloon rides. Summer is an endless treat of outdoor festivals from music to theatre. Summer is barbecue time and food and wine in New York state have always been exceptional.

Summer also means the days are longer and there are books to be read; and as you experience the poetic beauty of the state, there is romance and companionship to be found on a warm summer night. The famous author, Lucy Montgomery, described summer thus: “… a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends and delightful doing, come as near to perfection as anything can come in this world.”

Wherever you may be in the world, we hope you have a delightful season. And, of course fun in the sun.


Till next time…
