Whitewater Challengers' certified guides steer paddlers as young as 5 across the skipping surf of the Poconos’ Lehigh River Gorge, the Black River Canyon, and the Adirondacks’ Hudson, Moose, and Salmon rivers. In the rafting industry since 1975, the guides have collectively traveled more than 16 million miles of rapids. They chart courses that satisfy a range of experience levels, from beginning jaunts down gentle rapids to advanced battles through coursing foam and wicked currents. The crew’s ultimate goal is to make rafting a fun adventure, which means that they take care of the business end, providing all safety equipment, transportation to launch points, and lessons for novices. When not on the water, the outdoors-loving crew also organizes mountain-biking and camping trips in New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.

Lake George Steamboat Company's fleet of cruise ships?which range from a charming paddlewheel to a 107-year-old steel-hulled vessel?regularly set sail on scenic Lake George, nicknamed the "Queen of American Lakes." What passengers see, however, depends on the cruise. A moonlight cruise ferries them beneath the stars, whereas a fireworks cruise grants breathtaking views of fireworks displays. Sightseeing cruises chug along the shoreline, passing by the Adirondacks and slipping between the small islands known as the Narrows after the boat sucks in a large breath. Throughout the tour, a knowledgeable captain expounds on the history and ecology of Lake George.

Double M’s treats families to a day of fall fun with a bucolic hayride, mind-bending corn maze, and petting zoo filled with sociable farm animals. Duos can dangle shoes from the side of a tractor-drawn wagon, which hauls adults, kids, and stowaway phantoms on a 20-minute pilgrimage through the crisp fall air and toward the entrance of a labyrinthine corn maze. Maze-goers can showcase their navigational prowess as they wind their way through the towering earth-grown walls in pursuit of victory over racing companions. After the maze, huskers can refuel stomach engines with grub from the concession stand (not included with this Groupon) before hobnobbing with friendly animals in the petting zoo or indulging in the purest oxygen molecules by jumping atop a bouncy bounce. Double M’s invites tykes of all ages to join the autumnal festivities and welcomes children 2 and under free of charge.

Along 52 miles of track, an engine looking for all the world like it grew up on a Victorian model-train set chugs, cow-catcher first, through idyllic views of the Hudson River and the Adirondacks. The reproduction Leviathan No. 63?modeled after the Schenectady Locomotive Works' famed 1868 model?cuts a curious figure against the landscape, leaving nimbus steam clouds above the tracks. Enlisted for a special voyage in 2013 by Saratoga & North Creek Railway, the engine pays homage to the simple, time-honored alternative to modern-day travel that the company excels at. The red, yellow, and coal-blue set-piece of vintage Americana has since been retrofitted with a Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor and turned into a time machine, but that hasn't stopped the scenic journeys from taking place every weekend. In the Leviathan's place are clean-burning, diesel-powered engines pulling climate-controlled mid-century-style coaches and modern dome cars. The latter open onto panoramic vistas of fall foliage, the Adirondack foothills, and the Great Sacandaga Lake as seen from the bridge that traverses it. And while the train may embrace the spirit of a bygone era, it doesn't scrimp on the creature-comforts that create for a relaxing sojourn. As passengers trundle along the seven-station journey, they can take in the view during a meal in the dining car or enjoy snacks from the comfort of their own seat.

How do Halfmoon Cellars Winery vintners Alison Bauder and John Reyes ensure that the best grapes go into their wines? By traveling to the source and testing the grapes themselves. That's what the duo did on a recent trip to California, where they met with the vineyard owner and his family to see how the grapes were grown. Halfmoon's wines include a spicy cabernet sauvignon, a velvety merlot, and a citrus-tinged riesling that pairs well with slice of kinsman ridge or a fistful of melted gouda.
