It’s summer in Old Forge, NY once again and you’ve been wanting to take that family trip for a while now.

The thought of being stuck with the kids in a tent for several days has you somewhat frightened – we get it!

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered – there are LOTS to do with toddlers in Old Forge, NY

Mini Golf at the Nutty Putty

This venture out will sure to be a “hole in one” with the kiddos, not only is there fun to be had with a little family competition but you can also enjoy some tasty ice cream right on premise!

Movie Night at The Strand

After a long day on the lake, its always fun to switch things up and go check out a movie at an Old Forge institution! Plus the “Magic Rocks” show featuring Illusionist Leon Etienne. The show runs Thursday- Sunday at 2pm and 8pm through Labor Day!

The Strands unique esthetics and fun atmosphere is always a hit on family night out.

A “Sweet Time” at Candy Cottage

This one is easy – but somewhat dangerous! Step back in time when you enter Old Forge’s candy shop, offering endless homemade sweet treats – we recommend a visit (after everyone has eaten ALL of their dinner of course)!


Enjoy the beautiful Adirondack Air at the many area playgrounds and the Adirondacks- Playgrounds: North Street Playground, Town of Webb School Playground, Old Forge Lakefront plus Fern Park Playground and Arrowhead Park Playground in Inlet.
