Looking to keep the family entertained this summer while staying on a tight budget. You need to thinking about a Hudson Valley Family Staycation.

No need to pack the car and travel to far. If you have a camper think about tone of the many camping resorts as a place to go on the weekend many places offer a season al rate and you stay parked for the summer. If you were hoping for something other than camping I have found that too.

Can't Miss County Fairs for Summer 2024

Make this the year you skip the fancy theme park and keep it local instead.

Orange County Fair in Middletown, New York will get things kicked off with that fair opening on July 18th.

Hudson Valley New York Camping Resorts

The Hudson Valley is a camping destination for so many people including those of us who live locally. It is a great way to have a summer vacation every weekend close to home. Many places offer a seasonal rate for you to save money on your stay. You pull the trailer in for the summer and park it for the season which is usually May to October. The resorts we found offer family fun amenities and a season full of exciting activities.
