Outside of outdoor adventures, you'll find plenty of other things to love about this town. If you've never tasted fresh cider before, for instance, visit the Burrville Cider Mill. This venue features an extensive menu that includes unique drinks like cider slushes as well as edible treats like donuts and other pastries. The best time to visit is in the fall; your cup of hot cider will protect you against the chill in the air.

The New York State Zoo is another popular attraction, especially among kids. There's a butterfly habitat that proves particularly beautiful during the spring. Plus, the petting zoo lets kids and adults pet and feed several adorable creatures, from miniature horses and donkeys to goats.

If you're in the mood for some retail therapy, visit Salmon Run Mall, which features department stores as well as smaller venues. There's also the Jefferson County Historical Society, which proves extremely popular among history buffs. You'll especially love the restored water wheel, but there are several other artifacts and exhibits to keep you entertained for a couple of hours.

Whether you're in town for adventure, play, or relaxation, Watertown offers it all. You'll find yourself charmed by the quaint downtown and humbled by the majesty of the surrounding countryside. All you need is a great hotel and a plan to get here.

Best Time to Visit Watertown, NY

You can visit Watertown at any time of year, but most people choose the summer months. The warm temperatures make outdoor activities even more enjoyable, and its convenient with couples who have kids. However, the high tourist traffic incentivizes hotels to increase their prices, so you might choose another season if you don't want to pay top dollar for lodging.

The winter months also become crowded in Watertown thanks to the winter sports scene. For instance, many people spend hours — or even days — at the Dry Hill Ski Area. It's the perfect place for beginners to learn how to ski thanks to the low slopes and abundant powder. You can rent skis from a nearby outfitter and take the do-it-yourself route. Alternatively, book a lesson with a ski instructor.

If you're not interested in snow sports, the shoulder seasons offer the perfect opportunity to visit Watertown. The mild temperatures, lack of tourists, and waning hotel prices combine to create the ideal atmosphere for budget-conscious consumers who don't like to spend their vacations fighting crowds. Spring means lots of animal sightings in the natural areas, but can introduce uncomfortable allergens, while fall brings out the golden foliage and generally experiences less rain.

Most outfitters will stop along the ride so customers can grab a drink and a snack and appreciate the scenery. You can also dive into the water at certain points and go for a swim.

If you prefer to go it alone, consider kayaking down the river. It takes a little more skill, so consider beefing up your kayaking skills before you take up this challenge. You'll need to rent a kayak from a local venue or bring your own. Additionally, you might need park passes and other permissions, so check with the local authorities before you put your craft in the water.

You might also want to go hiking in the Adirondacks. The trails range from fairly easy to extremely difficult, so assess your fitness level before you embark on your excursion. Pack plenty of water and a few energy-fueling snacks for your trek, and don't forget your camera because you'll want to capture the beauty you witness.

Now that you're ready for adventure and other entertainment in Watertown, you can select the best hotel for you and your traveling companions and start dreaming about your vacation. As soon as you arrive, you'll feel the stress melt away.
