« on: March 27, 2012, 02:28:51 AM »
I am thinking of taking a 2-3 day trip to the Finger Lakes this coming Chol Hamoed, I am looking for any info I can get such as what's the best part to go to and what hotels to stay at and also if there is anything to do there kid-friendly.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Also I just looked for hotels on TripAdvisor, there doesn't seem to be a normal hotel in Cooperstown... Where would I stay?

Great, but is it worthwhile for a 2-3 day trip?

A kid that age can definitely appreciate an aquarium or a children's museum

What to do there?
Take out a boat
Six flags (if it's open)
Arcades
Mini golf
There's a sick tree climbing place 20 minutes north
There's a beach (never been)
Hiking
Rafting/tubing
indoor rock climbing
I believe there are also some museums

This place looks nice and expensive, but will be closed on Chol Hamoed
