Pet Fest in Glens Falls ?>

Pet Fest in Glens Falls

The Glens Falls Collaborative held their first Pet Fest yesterday, featuring dog relates demonstrations, booths and community activities.     The pet-friendly event had decent turnout for a first time event. I brought Maddux with me, and it totally exhausted him!           There were vendors selling pet products, treats, jewelry and more. We even signed Maddux up for a doggie day care trial next week. It was nice that someone put a focus on pets in the community. Now,…

Lake George A&W Is Reopened ?>

Lake George A&W Is Reopened

The Lake George A&W is reopened! A devastating fire shut down the landmark restaurant last year, and it hasn’t reopened until today. The locally owned Lake George business dates back decades to 1959, according to one report. Believe it or not, it was my first time at the restaurant, despite driving past it daily. My Dad very much enjoyed his root beer float, which they are known for. I opted for the fried scallop roll, eating just the scallops, which were…

Wellness Weekend at Girlfriends Getaway in Bolton Landing ?>

Wellness Weekend at Girlfriends Getaway in Bolton Landing

Spending this weekend attending the Girlfriends Getaway in Bolton Landing was exactly what I needed, and I didn’t even know it. I had attended the first two of these weekends, but then always had to go to a conference for work the same weekend, and haven’t been to it since. I like to call it a wellness weekend, because the programing is geared to help woman become the best version of themselves. There are fitness classes, sessions about holistic healing,…

Howard Johnson’s Restaurant in Lake George

Where do I begin this post? When I was little we *always* went here for breakfast while visiting my great-grandparents. In fact, it was one of the very few places we did go, because we usually just always ate at home. I remember the big breakfast buffet and always wanting to sit by the window so I could look out at all the cars going by and Water Slide World. When they closed the restaurant I was so sad. Before…

Best Waterfront Breakfast on Lake George ?>

Best Waterfront Breakfast on Lake George

So, where is the best waterfront breakfast on Lake George in the Adirondacks? Blue Water Manor. No doubt about it.    You seriously cannot beat these views. My aunt from Staten Island was visitng and I had heard about this place, but had never been there. I was worried about the food, but I shouldn’t have. The breakfast was just as good as the view!    The inside is gorgeous as well. The stone work is just beautiful. My aunt…

Glens Falls Duck Race ?>

Glens Falls Duck Race

The Glens Falls Duck Race, hosted by the local Kiwanis Club, is such a cute event.  Not as famous as the Chicago Rubber Duck Race, but still a great time. Not only do they race ducks down the feeder canal, but they also have a bunch of family friendly activities, which is especially nice if you have kids.  Oh, and have I mentioned it is dog friendly?! I mean how cute is this photo?     For $5 each you can…

Horses, Reindeer & Fun at Saratoga County Fair 

The Saratoga County Fair kicked off yesterday at the Saratoga County Fairgrounds and included tons of fair food, beautiful horses, rides, 4-H exhibits and reindeer.  It was my first time to the event, and my first time at a fair outside of New Jersey. Little bit different, but still tons of fun.  Some people might have gone straight to the food area, which had everything from deep-fried bacon-wrapped snickers to hand rolled hot pretzels, but I opted for the animal…

Glens Falls Monday Night Farmers Market  ?>

Glens Falls Monday Night Farmers Market 

Fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers are my favorite. They are not only healthy, but make me a very happy girl. It’s hard to get to the Farmers Market on weekends sometimes, which is why I love the idea of the Glens Falls Monday night market. Plus, it’s a great way to start the week. I look forward to finishing work and heading over to pick up some fresh items. It makes Monday a little less daunting.  Considerably smaller than the…

Wild Walk at The Wild Center in the Adirondacks

The Wild Walk at The Wild Center in the Adirondacks is stunning. A tree-top look of  the Adirondacks with breathtaking views, and unique features that bring you right into nature. Visitors don’t even realize they are walking above the trees until at one point you turn to your right and left and realize many of the trees are below you. Dubbed, “a trail across the tree tops,” the structure is really amazing. Everything from the design, to how you walk…

Breakfast at Bolton Beans  ?>

Breakfast at Bolton Beans 

Bolton Beans in Bolton Landing is one of my favorite breakfast places in the Lake George region.  It’s small, cute and good. Plus, it’s next to one of my favorite stores, Happy Jacks.    A friend and I went for breakfast before the Adirondack Wine and Food Festival. They have a good selection of items, including breakfast wraps which were super easy to make dairy, meat and egg free.  It has jalepeanos, hashbrowns, veggies and black beans. Oh, and the…
