Sunflower season is upon us. And many of us are wondering where we can go and get some Instagram worthy photos frolicking in the flowers or perhaps family photos. I’ve done a little research and I’m sharing some spots where you can see sunflowers in the Capital District. (I’ve also linked my dress and headband below, both Amazon finds!)

Dino Roar Valley

Dino Roar Valley

Today we got to visit the brand new Dino Roar Valley in Lake George, NY. We are huge dino fanatics in our house so we were excited to check it out.

Dino Roar Valley

Dino Roar Valley features 20 life size dinosaurs that move and roar as you walk by. The tour is along a beautiful tree-lined pathway. It’s a nice, easy 1/2 mile walk and very stroller friendly. There’s also a spot for the kids to climb into a dino nest, dig for dinosaur fossils and attend a paleontologist workshop. It was a great experience and we had a blast.

On our way home we stopped at the Log Jam for lunch and then hit up some of the outlets for some shopping too.

If you’re looking for a little day trip, head up to Lake George and check out Dino Roar Valley. It opens this Memorial Day Weekend. It’s located right next to the Magic Forest where you can ride the ferris wheel and visit the petting zoo as well.
