If you are in search of something different to do with the kids this summer you may want to look into things that are planned for various places around the Hudson Valley. Some things to do aren't always top of mind or obvious.

The Trailside Museums and Zoo at Bear Mountain can be fun and full of excitement for kids. The Mohonk Preserve in Ulster County New York also offers one-of-a-kind experiences for people of all ages. Another place to consider is on the Waterfront in the City of Poughkeepsie, The Mid-Hudson Discovery Museum.
