One of ‘Best Places in World to Visit in Summer’ Is Short Drive Away
This sounds like a must-do for the summer to us! A New York landmark is listed among places to travel to travel to this summer. From Botswana to Indianapolis to Istanbul to New York!
The Wild Center's Wild Walk is among the top places to check out during the summer.
Conde Nast Traveler compiled a list of the top 30 places to travel to this summer. Between Nepal's Chitwan National Park and Croatia's Brac Island's Yoga for Bad People's retreat is the Adirondacks' Wild Walk in Tupper Lake, about five hours from Buffalo, NY.
Wild Walk in Tupper Lake is described by Conde Nast as the "next best thing to being an Ewok", and this is the perfect description.
Get a birds-eye perspective of the Adirondacks, encounter animals and immerse yourself in nature.
Wild Walk takes you up a trail of bridges to the treetops of the Adirondack forest.
"It’s designed to transform the way we see into the natural world by offering up the perspective of the rest of nature."
The Wild Walk experience includes a four-story twig tree house and swinging bridges, a spider’s web where people can hang out, and chances to just sit and observe the forest below. There’s a full-sized bald eagle’s nest at the highest point.
The Wild Center and Wild Walk are open daily from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.
