There is so much to do and so much fun to be had as soon as that warm weather kicks into full gear here in the Capital Region.

I wanted to see what you were most excited for, so I polled my Facebook page to get it straight from your mouth! I'll admit, I've lived in the Capital Region for almost my entire life and based on your comments, I need to start exploring the area more than I have and start really living!

A lot of outdoor activities were what I expected and that's definitely what I got. Making the list:

  • Camping
  • Hiking
  • Swimming
  • Walking/Running
  • Kayaking
  • Bon fires
  • Water Tubing
  • Local Beaches
  • Outdoor Craft Fairs
  • Flea Markets

I did ask if people had some favorite places to experience these activities and the list came pouring in: Durant Lake, Lewey Lake, Lincoln Pond, Lake Luzerne, Wakonda in Pottersville, Battenkill, Pine Bush trails, Lishakill Trails were notable mentions.

I know I'm excited for all of that and then some! This will be my first time experiencing Countryfest and I can't wait for the SPAC season to kick in, too!

Is there something missing from the list that you're excited for? Let me know:
