Any one who has children knows, once you have that beautiful child, your whole world changes. It is no longer about you, but your children. And, this extends into everything in life. Whether is food, clothing or activities, you have to think about your kids first. This comes into play in a huge way when decided where to vacation or move too. You have to make sure where you are going has things for your kids, and for you. This includes things you can do together as a family. It never hurts if it is an education experience either! I know how difficult it can be to find something to do with the whole family, having witnessed it many times when helping my sister with her two children.

            Ulster County is a perfect place to come with your children. First of all, it is only a 90 minute drive from Midtown, so your kids won’t have to sit in the car to long. I know that can be a much bigger factor when you have children asking “Are we there yet?” The second bonus is all the fun family friendly things there are to do here in Ulster County!

One of the best activity ideas is going to one of the numerous local farms. Most of the orchards in Ulster have several orchards that you can go in and pick you own apples. Also, in pumpkin season, you can pick out your own pumpkin to make a jack-o-lantern! Many farms also feature hay rides, and have delicious treats like apple cider and donuts! I am an adult, I love doing the corn mazes they have! We also have many organic farms here. Farms like Four Winds Farm, you can visit, and they will tell you all about the organic food growing process! It is pretty amazing to be able to see the food you eat grow and how it is harvested!

            Don’t worry, there are plenty of things to do with your kids, other than go to farms all weekend long. In High Falls there is the D&H Canal Historical society and Museum. You can take a tour of a canal lock, and you can learn about the history of the canal and technological innovations which is associated with canals! There are many lighthouses in the region as well. You can take tours of the various light houses, and learn the history behind them. If you have children who like boats this is the perfect place to go!

            Of course hiking, or walking, is a fantastic thing to do with your kids. Ulster County is home to many hiking trails. You can visit the Catskill Forest Preserve; go boating, camping, shell fishing and more! This area provides endless actives that are family friendly and fun.

            So if you come to visit the area, and you realize what a great area it is for children and a family, or just for you, come stop by Murphy Realty Group on 304 Wall Street in Kingston. We will help you with any real estate need you have!
