The Gift Of Experience

The Gift Of Experience

The best part of a gift is the thought behind it. That is because the thought is what shows your loved ones you care. So, share the gift of experience with the ones you love in Old Forge, New York! No matter the time of year, there is always so much fun to be had – no matter what you like to do! Plus, the views are always picturesque, especially from your waterfront balcony at Water’s Edge Inn!

Summer Season Fun

Enchanted Forest Water Safari

When it comes to summer, nothing says adventure quite like New York State’s largest water theme park! Whether you go for the 32 heated water rides, the circus, dry rides, or for the other fun at Water Safari, you and your loved ones will have a great time! Plus, Enchanted Forest Water Safari has been named the fourth-best water park in the United States and the seventeenth best in the entire world! You’ve got to check it out, which is easy from your stay at Water’s Edge Inn – they’re right across the street.

Calypso’s Cove

No matter how you like to have fun, Calypso’s Cove has something for you! Between go-karts, bumper boats, mini-golfing, ziplining, and the arcade, the fun never stops! Plus, you pay as you play, so you don’t have to spend your money on something you don’t want to do! The best part? Calypso’s Cove and Enchanted Forest Water Safari are located right across the street from Water’s Edge Inn and Calypso’s Cove stays open later than the water park!

Farmer’s Market

If you’re looking for an adventure that doesn’t come around every day, then venture over to the Old Forge Farmer’s Market! Every Friday from June through October, the farmers market is set up just down the road with tons of local goods to choose from like locally grown fruits and veggies, homemade crafts, locally sourced honey, and so much more – this is something you won’t want to miss!

Fall Time Fun – Leaf Peeping


Spending some time on the serene lakes of Old Forge is an activity that presents the perfect combination of fun and relaxation. Kayaking and canoeing allow you to feel closer to nature and is a great way to leaf peep. The reflection of the bright, fall leaves in the clear water below and the beautiful trees around you create the opportunity to be fully submersed into the beauty of fall.


These two actives are great if you want to escape from the beaten path and spend a little time in nature. In Old Forge, we have many hiking and biking paths ranging from beginner skill levels to pros. However, no matter the path you choose, they will all bring you closer to nature. Our trails through the Adirondack forest and mountains create a leaf-peeping experience you don’t want to miss.

Winter Wonderland Fun

McCauley Mountain

McCauley Mountain is a great place to ski in the winter, it is also the home of some of the prettiest views Old Forge has to offer. Taking the chairlift to the top of the mountain is a fun activity all within itself, however, it pales in comparison to the view from the top of the mountain. Plus, the ride back down the mountain isn’t so bad either! Check out this link for our Winter Stay ‘N Play Specials.


When the weather turns cold and snow covers the ground, snowmobiling is a great way to enjoy the outdoors! Spend all day tearing up some of the many, many snow-covered trails Old Forge has to offer! Then, come inside for some warm coffee, tea, or hot chocolate in the cozy lounge at Water’s Edge Inn!

All Year Round – All Around the Town

The views are not the only great thing about Old Forge. The town also contributes to creating the best vacation imaginable, with its fun shops, lively restaurants, and kind townsmen, Old Forge is a great place to be.

Strand Theatre

The Strand is like no movie theater you have ever been to before. From the moment you lay eyes on the building you know that this place is special. At the Strand, the cinematic experience starts from the moment you open the door and walk into one of Old Forge’s great gems.

View Arts Center

This art center is the perfect place for some fun, relaxing activities. Whether you take one of the many fun classes offered, or just go to experience the masterfully done art, View is a great place for an afternoon of fun.

In Old Forge, there is never a dull season! These are a few of the fun activities that you and your loved ones can enjoy! However, no matter the time of year that you visit, you and your loved ones will be treated to a great gift of experience as you make memories here that will last forever!
