After being cooped up in our houses for the past year or so, it is time to get back to travel and start planning a family vacation for spring. With mud season upon us, Vermont and New York’s fifth season, consider taking a trip to Stowe or the Adirondacks. During this season, both destinations offer birdwatching adventures, waterfalls, white-water rafting, paddling, hiking, golf and more.

 

The top resorts in each destination are Topnotch Resort in Stowe, Vermont, and High Peaks Resort in Lake Placid, New York. Both offer awesome packages and deals for travel through the summer months.

 

While exploring the Lake Placid region this spring and summer, make High Peaks Resort your basecamp. The resort’s Your Home in the Adirondacks package includes daily breakfast; spacious Adirondack-inspired guestrooms; complimentary upgraded WiFi; and access to all resort amenities. This includes two indoor and two outdoor heated pools, an indoor Jacuzzi, Dancing Bears Restaurants, private access to Mirror Lake with complimentary kayak, paddle boats and stand-up paddle boards usage, waterfront yoga, access to the fitness center and more. Guests can also take advantage of outdoor adventure packages such as hiking and golf.

 

For more information on this resort and package, visit High Peaks Resort’s website.

 

Families interested in exploring Stowe, Vermont, should stay at Topnotch Resort for an all-inclusive playground. With the Topnotch Fusion package, guests can enjoy a $100 nightly credit at The Roost Restaurant, a $100 daily credit at the Topnotch Spa, daily access to the fitness center, indoor and outdoor pools, Jacuzzis and luxurious overnight accommodations. Guests can also play a round of tennis at Topnotch Tennis Academy or spend time outside mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, fishing and more with Mountain Ops Outdoor Gear.
