This collection is beyond any small towns desires for beautiful art and culture. What a treasure located in hometown, USA. I love visiting with friends and family when they visit and also just to stop by for special exhibits when flying solo. Renoir, Picasso, Ruebens just to name a few...along with gorgeous architecture and lovely history.

The Area's Premiere Paintball and Airsoft Playing Facility. Walk on play on Sunday's from 10-4 or private groups by appointment 7 days a week. Knowledgeable staff, rentals available, 4 different playing courses.

Reviewed By Bethany B

The owner and referees go out of their way to make it a fun and safe environment for everyone. There are the guys you can tell are there every week, but they're patient and encouraging of new and young players. I was scared at first, but they put all my fears to rest. Once my youngest are 10 and able to join in we will bring them to play too! Will be back!

Cooper's Cave

Reviewed By ReddyBro

The portion dedicated to Coopers Cave is short with bits of info about James Fenimore Cooper's interaction with Glens Falls and the book he wrote Last of the Mohicans.
If you walk in the opposite direction after having visited the Cooper Cave section you can stay on an asphalt path along the canal that has many benches and nice vistas
across the canal. It's about 2 miles round trip from the South Glens Falls Historical Park. There are also other trails along the Feeder Trail but this section is nice for slow pace..young children or seniors. Some reviews are mistakenly referencing Coopers Cave Ale Company that is a bar not near this history site.

The Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom

Opening weekend, May 13 & 14! The Great Escape & Splashwater Kingdom has over 135 rides, shows & attractions, including a full outdoor water park. Featuring thrilling rides like Comet and the all-new Extreme Supernova as well as two children's areas - there is something for everyone!

Reviewed By Hokiechip - Roanoke, VA

We've visited Great Escape for the first time and were really disappointed. We are roller coaster enthusiasts and found that two of their five coasters were closed both days. The only thing that "salvaged" the trip was the ride crew on the Comet, who seemed to really enjoy their job and allowed us numerous repeat rides due to the low crowd. BTW, the Comet should not be missed - despite being 90 years old, the Comet delivers plenty of airtime without being very rough.

Our first day, we arrived late afternoon and found the park very difficult to navigate due to the combination of fog machines and lack of lighting. Perhaps that works great for the Halloween theme, but we became really frustrated on trying to find specific places.

Overall, I would have to rate this park this park very low - perhaps at the bottom in the theme parks that we have visited. Because of it's past history as Storyland, it does have lost of things for the little ones to do. If we were in the neighborhood, we would stop in try and ride the coasters we missed, but would not make a special trip to visit.

Feeder Canal Trail

Reviewed By apples0ranges - Saratoga Springs, New York

I have utilized this trail usually by bicycle multiple times over the years; the trail is quite flat most of the way except to the very end in HF by the Five Combines which is the original canal lock system (and is quite pretty) and further north in Queensbury along Glen Lake and Lake George. It is a non-motorized trail thus a lot safer than biking along a road and it is well maintained. We like it because it follows the old canal and has lots of shade and sometimes mallards swimming in the canal. Many people also walk the trail with their dog. I've biked by myself and have never had a problem. There are even 2 ice cream shops I can think of to stop at which is nice for those with kids. The trail is a positive thing for those who have easy access to it and it provides availability of a free and healthy outdoor activity to those who are visiting.

King Smiley Billiards

King Smiley Billiards is the area's premier pool hall. We feature eight 9-foot, well maintained tables. We also have a private space available with a 7-foot "bar" table and darts for your get-together. Couples, singles and parties of up to 20 people will find KSB a comfortable place for nighttime fun. It's the perfect place for pool-hall junkies to get their fix or a group of friends to unwind and have a few drinks. With it's retro-inspired vibe, KSB offers a modern option for those seeking a hotspot that hearkens back to an era when good times ruled. That era is back at King Smiley Billiards.

Reviewed By DVCMama - Jacksonville, Florida

This is a fairly new place in Ft. Edward. I've been there with my husband several times and it's a nice place to go. We are both very competitive and not only do they have pool tables, they have air hockey and foosball tables. They serve alcohol at very reasonable prices (moscato!), but I have not had their food as of yet. This place seems like a more upscale billiard place than you would typically find, I think, It has a more modern look, great background music and is always very clean. It's definitely a fun night out, especially if you're a bit competitive!

The only place to catch a play in Glens Falls, and they do a good job of it. Seating is nice, not a bad spot in the house, and the variety keeps it interesting. Downtown, so catching dinner before or afterwards is easy, and there's plenty of parking in the evening as well..

The Shirt Factory

The Shirt Factory was built in 1902 for the McMullen-Leavens Company as a shirt factory, the building was expanded in 1910 as production increased. In the 1930's the product line expanded into dress manufacturing. The shirt and dresses produced here were high quality fashion featured on the pages of publications like Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. Production continued here through 1996 when the factory closed its doors. In 1999 the current owner began a slow process of rehabilitating the building and breaking it up into rentable studio space. Over the years the space has grown and evolved. Visitors will find an eclectic mix of individuals calling the 70 plus studios here home, offering a wide range of goods, services, classes and more. The building is open daily 8am-5pm, individual studios set their own hours/availability, please check our website for studio hours. While here you will notice machines in the halls and dresses and shirts displayed in cases, these are from the original factory that operated here, for which the building is named. The first floor is our "designated retail area" all studios on this floor are open on Thur-Sat from 12pm-5pm, many studios on the other floors are also open at this time, making these ideal days to visit the building! The range offered by tenants is impressive! There is kung fu/martial arts/tai chi, yoga & zumba, loose leaf tea, baked goods, Himalayan salt lamps and Himalayan salt products, pottery, furniture, original artwork in a variety of forms and mediums, acupuncture, massage, vintage goods, a hair salon, yarn and fiber arts...You have to it experience to truly appreciate the variety. For an experience unlike any other, visit the building during an open house, especially the two that occur between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The owner allows the tenants to invite outside vendors in to set up in the halls, it is an amazing opportunity not only to shop local, but to find unique one of a kind gifts for yourself and everyone else on your list! On our website is a full directory with tenant descriptions, hours and contact information, as well as a calendar with upcoming events and classes to help you make the most of your visit!

Reviewed By S S - Adirondacks, New York

The Shirt factory is a good place for artists who need studio space and want an opportunity to have it open to the public. That said, it's not the kind of place where a casual visitor could go and count on finding the trip worth their while. Each artist has their own schedule for being open and the layout of the building can be a bit confusing. If you're not going for a specific open house event or to see a specific artist(s) who you know will be open you may find the trip a waste of time.
