Local Summer Getaways Of All Sorts!
It's going to be another amazing weekend, with great weather, the Taste of Buffalo, and many more awesome things to occupy your time with. But, if you're someone who wants to just get away and enjoy the warm sunshine, maybe get some exercise or just hang out with the family. Here are a few of our favorite places to go in Western New York!
What can't you do here, is the real question! They have golfing, Frisbee Golf, a beach, a boat launch (where you can go cannoning, kayacking, and more). Not only do they have all this and more, but in size the park is 950 acres, how about a nice relaxing walk. There is more than enough room!
If you just want to catch some summer rays, then Bennett Beach is the perfect getaway for you. It's not even a far drive, located at 8276 Lake Shore Road in Evans. You can layout and get a tan, or get adventurous and try some windsurfing (of course you need the proper equipment, but you can do it.)
3. Zoar Valley
This beautiful getaway, is a diamond in the rough. Not a lot of people know about Zoar Valley, but it is perfect for those who love nature walks, hiking, mountain biking, waterfalls, and adventure in general!
If you're a boater, enjoy the beach, and/or nature walks, this is the place for you. They are located in Wilson on Lake Ontario, and pets are allowed, but they do need to be on a leash. For those of you who don't know the area and love wine, Wilson is also know for their amazing wineries. So grab a bottle and relax at this state park!
Also known as the "Grand Canyon of the East". This state park is for almost everyone. They have camping, hiking, biking, nature trails, waterfalls and much, much more. If you want a true retreat with your family that gives you a chance to enjoy and just appreciate nature this is it 100%! A perfect summer getaway for the adventurists.

They have trails for hiking, biking, and nature walks. Lakes for fishing, swimming and water sports. Beaches to enjoy the warm summer sun! In the Fall the leaves will leave you and yours breathless. Just another piece of New York you have to experience, even for a day.
