We all know that sometimes holiday shopping can be a real drag. Going to the same stores, shopping for the same people - who seem to have everything ... This year, why not mix it up a little? Give the gift of tickets!
Oak Mountain Tickets
Know someone that loves to ski or snowboard? Ski passes are available for Oak Mountain, and they're incredibly affordable. This cute, family friendly mountain is great for skiers of all abilities. Some of my favorite trails include 5th Ave and Lower Ryan's Run. If skiing is not their thing, grab them some tubing passes! Who can say no to some work-free tubing fun? The lift takes you to the top over and over again for hours of fun.
The Indian Lake Theater is one of the few small, one-screen movie theaters still in operation. It's a great place to catch a show. They show all sorts of movies from the newest hits to seasonal classics. They even occasionally play host to a live show. They also have a great concession stand, with all the standards: popcorn, candy, and soda. Tickets to the Indian Lake Theater would make a great gift!
WW Durant Tickets
Tickets for a cruise aboard the WW Durant are a great gift for history buffs, water lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, and more! They offer fantastic summer cruises on Raquette Lake. From gourmet dinner cruises to scenic excursions to live entertainment, they have an awesome variety of options.
An experience for all ages, tickets to the Adirondack Experience Museum on Blue Mountain Lake make the perfect gift. Learning here is fun and interactive. You can see up close the craftsmanship that went into making an authentic Adirondack guideboat, walk through a real locomotive, and visit new state-of-the-art exhibits where you'll see how technology is changing how we learn.
Great Camp Sagamore Tour Tickets
Do you have a history buff on your list? The Great Camp Sagamore offers tours of its historic grounds all summer long. You can learn the history of how the camp was built and used by the Vanderbilts in the 1890s. This is a unique opportunity, as most historic great camps are not open to the public!
When all else fails, and you are stuck in that holiday shopping slump — shop local! There are so many unique spots to find just the right gift. You can find locally made maple syrup, a sweatshirt boasting the name of a favorite getaway destination, camping and fishing supplies for the next visit, and more! There are lots of great sales and deals going on around the holidays. And, don't miss out on any of the great holiday events and fairs!
