YOUR INSPIRATION TO EXPLORE THE WORLD

Legos for You and All Your Friends

Ever wonder where all your family friends have gone for the weekend, as no one seems to be around? Well, if they’re staying local, there’s a good chance that they’re at the new Legoland. This Mecca for kids is about an hour from practically every destination in the tri-state area. But this is no normal Legoland; it’s the tricked-out version. Here are the details of Legoland in New York.

Location: Goshen, Orange County New York

The Hudson Valley just provided another reason for your family to take a weekend trip, and that’s the opening of Legoland in New York. This is not your average amusement park. As of August 2021, the place also has a hotel, located right outside of the park gates. Yes, now it’s possible to go all legos, all the time. Is this a good or bad thing? Well, it depends on your family hotel preference, because this obviously isn’t the Four Seasons. However, it could be a good pre-trip before you take the plunge to hit up Disney in California or Florida. And given its one-hour distance to New York City, it’s an accessible vacation for all. At minimum it’s a spot to get away with your younger kids this summer and beyond.

The Broad Strokes

For those who are space-constricted in a New York City apartment, you now have room to throw the ultimate birthday party. There’s even a large pool at Legoland, open during the summers, which can be a great place to beat the heat if you don’t have your Hamptons rental. Personally, we’re both intrigued and terrified by the disco elevator, which seems to be a big hit with the kids. Also a hit are the rooms themed with ninjas, pirates, and castles. Legoland in New York is where your kids will be easily, effortlessly entertained, from the park to the hotel.

A weekend in Legoland in New York doesn’t have to be entirely dedicated to the iconic Danish building blocks. The Hudson Valley offers nature trails and waterfalls — and for the less outdoorsy, the Woodbury Common Outlets, which is just about 15 minutes away.
