Summer Fun!

There are so many ways to enjoy the pleasures of summer in the Valley — it all depends on your mood. Looking for something relaxing? Take a stroll through a formal garden or a cruise down the Hudson. Need more excitement? Watch a stock car race, rock out at a summer concert, or hurtle down a 600-foot water slide. The choices are endless. So gas up the car, and get going!

Play a Round of Miniature Golf

Whether you’re a scratch handicapper or can’t tell a bunker from a bogey, a game of mini-golf is a surefire way to enliven a lazy summer afternoon or evening. And with no less than seven mini-courses in the region, you can have your pick of unusual locations with fun themes. Purists can head to Poughkeepsie’s Overlook Golf Center; the layout is comprised of micro versions of actual holes located at golf courses from around the area — and across the country. Fans of sci-fi will enjoy the three-headed dog and other extraterrestrial obstacles at Monster Mini-Golf in Middletown. The indoor, glow-in-the-dark setup at GloPutt in Blauvelt is perfect if the weather isn’t cooperating. And for all you crunchy granola types, Kelder Farm in Kerhonkson has a 10-hole mini course which is ringed by more than 50 varieties of plants, vegetables, fruits, and grains. At the ninth hole, you can meet the “the Grain Gang,” 13 cartoon figures made out of edible seeds and grains. And yes, tasting is not only permitted, it’s encouraged.
