Park Yourself Right Here for Summer Fun! 
Just a short drive away, plan a day trip or a weekend getaway to the Enchanted Mountains Region of NY's Western Edge.  Whether you're an Adventure Seeker, Cultural Enthusiast, Socialite or Nature Lover, we have activities that will heat up your summer!  Try any one of our Parks, which include all the makings of the best summer vacation, right next door!  Take an inexpensive, worth your dollar, daytrip to visit Allegany State Park, Rock City Park, Griffis Sculpture Park, Sky High Adventure Park or Onoville Marina, all opened in May!

Allegany State Park offers one of summer's greatest activities- camping!  For all the nature lovers out there, book your cabin or reserve your site for your sizzlin' summer vacation.  Make your vacation exciting and fun while hiking through the woods, biking along the paved routes, or fishing on Red House Lake- rentals are available!  This is the season for exploring the great outdoors and there's no better place to do just that than Allegany State Park.

Rock City Park will offer visitors and adventure seekers a spectacular view of the Enchanted Mountains from "Signal Rock", where you can gaze upon the hills from above the tree line.  Discover 80 feet tall rocks that have been left over from the ice age.  Hike the trail that leads under, around and sometimes through these magnificent rocks then check out the souvenir and rock shop or the Fluorescent Light Rock Room.  This park is a great way to start your Summer Fun!

The grass is always greener at Griffis Sculpture Park, where nature combines with art.  Hike along the trail to come upon over 250 enormous sculptures.   Culture enthusiasts and adults like the park because it has beauty like no other, while children like the park because you can climb on most of the sculptures!  Fun to visit in any season, visitors enjoy feeling the warmth of the sun while resting beside a giant giraffe or sitting near the ladies of the lake. 

Sky High Adventure Park in Ellicottville is the coolest place to be this summer.   See why this is a summer must-do when you are whizzing down one of their numerous ziplines.  Choose any of their courses, tailored to different levels of difficulty, making your way through the obstacles in the trees.  Everyone in the family will enjoy the exhilarating fun of this Aerial Park, the largest in NY State!  Guaranteed to be the story of the summer that you tell all your friends and family!       

"Put in" at Onoville Marina, the largest inland marina in New York State.  Campsites, dock space and fuel dock are available as well as great dining nearby at the Horseshoe Inn and the Nic-L-Inn.  View the beautiful scenery of rolling hills, crystal clear water, and wooded areas as you drift or speed along!  Boat rentals are available at the Bayview Mini-Mart and Ice Cream Parlor.  Mark July 25th on your calendar for Onofest!  A day-long event filled with good music, food, crafts and fireworks alongside the water!
