Greene County, New York 
 
Greene County NYThe ideal family travel destination has to not only have lots of amenities and proximity to major attractions but also have the great outdoors thrown in the mix. These family vacation spots-- those that truly embrace the outdoor lifestyle, but are situated close to major cities-- are a rare find. However, one of the most refreshing and exciting places to visit, that offers all this and more, is Greene County, New York. Greene County is just two hours north of New York City. Close enough to pile everyone and everything in the car and escape quickly, but far enough away that the busy streets and thronged sidewalks of the big city are distant memories.

Tips for Families on the Go

Family in Car

  • Limit each family member to 20 pounds in a carry-on-size bag.  A 9" x 22" x 14" bag fits under most airplane seats and will free you from burdensome baggage that will only drag you down.
  • Bring one pair of comfortable walking shoes as well as a pair of sandals or Tevas. Before you leave home, break in your new shoes so you're not uncomfortable on the road.
  • ID your kids. On an index card, write each child's name, your name and hotel address and phone number, as well as the phone number of a close friend or relative back home.
