From Legoland to George Washington’s headquarters, this New York State region is filled with sites that can engage visitors of all ages and interests
Orange County is a mere 80 kilometres north of New York City, but its leisurely pace, lush landscape and many offerings make it seem worlds away.
At the new Legoland New York Resort, a theme park and hotel that opened in the village of Goshen in the Hudson Valley Region last summer, taking selfies with brick-built princesses and dodging pirate water cannons are just a few of the activities that have families flocking. Geared to kids aged two to 12, the park provides an engaging environment with rides, fun foods and opportunities to build your own Lego masterpiece.
“It’s meant to be a child’s first experience in a theme park, not too big or scary,” explains Matt Besterman, the facility’s public relations manager.
The resort is the third in the United States, after California and Florida, and ninth in the world.
