Hotel at a Glance: Six Flags Great Escape Lodge & Indoor Waterpark
No matter how blustery it gets outside, it’s always a balmy 80 degrees inside Six Flags Great Escape Lodge’s indoor water park. A lazy river circumnavigates the 38,000-square-foot facility, passing by water slides, an adults-only hot tub, and a multilevel treehouse with interactive sprayers. There’s even a whitewater-rafting simulator that sends riders zipping across foaming rapids on a bright-yellow raft. Guests of Six Flags Great Escape Lodge get unlimited access to all the aquatic fun.

Queensbury, New York: Picturesque Gateway to the Adirondacks
Queensbury is a gateway to New York’s Adirondack Park, a sprawling swath of land characterized by boreal forests and lofty mountain peaks. But you don’t have to leave town to find beautiful scenery. The town is sandwiched between two picturesque bodies of water: Lake George to the north and the Hudson River to the south.
