I have visited New Paltz ever since I was a teenager. My dad would bring us up to Minnewaska on hot summer days to enjoy the lake and the falls. Later in life, I attend SUNY New Paltz which is when I became more familiar with other things to do around town.

It turns out that New Paltz really is a town where you can do things all year round no matter what the weather has planned. Indoor activities for cold winter days or even those hot summer days are plentiful and not hard to access. Beyond the eclectic shopping, party bars and a number of delicious restaurants New Paltz offers other forms of entertainment you might not realize.
