Summer has arrived in the Hudson Valley and more than ever, we want to be outside. The Hudson Valley is filled with nature trails, gardens to visit and swimming holes to cool off in.

Hudson Valley beaches fill up by mid summer with eager residents who enjoy their staycation. However, there aren't many waterparks in our area.

I remember going to a waterpark in New Jersey when I was younger. It wasn't until a few years ago that I attended this popular waterpark in the Hudson Valley.
