Ausable River and Whiteface Mountain

Wilmington is nestled in a beautiful location next to the Ausable River and backed by the Whiteface Mountain in upstate New York. It's long been a destination for adventurous travelers who come to the region to trophy fish, cool off in the waterfalls or swimming holes and ski during the winter. In 1980, it hosted the alpine ski events for the Winter Olympics. Now, the Wilmington vacation rentals serve as the perfect base for hiking along the gorges, river banks and forests throughout the year. On the summit of Whiteface, spectacular views of the Adirondack Park can be admired.

The adventure playground

If you're lucky enough to nab a Wilmington vacation rental, you'll have access to a whole host of outdoor adventures right at your doorstep. The winding mountain roads make for excellent cycling paths, while the backcountry trails are ideal for hiking. Be sure to pause and take in the glistening waterfalls and cascades along the way. If you're an angler, the Ausable River offers some of the best fly fishing in the country. Cast your lure to hook in a trout, or for something more adventurous, jump on board whitewater rafts to ride the rapids.

Santa's come early

If you're staying in a Wilmington vacation rental with kids, they'll love Santa's Workshop, one of the first theme parks in the country. Interestingly, it's open between June and December, so you can get in the festive spirit in the height of summer. Alternatively, you can take the little ones to Motion Theater Productions where they can test their ski jumps skills on the full motion, high definition flat screen platform. When the weather is good, you can pack up a picnic and head down to Jay Covered Park to see the mid-19th-century wooden bridge.

All 4 seasons in Wilmington

Wilmington truly is a year-round destination. Spring is a wonderful time to visit, with colorful wildflowers filling the forest floors, and the skies clear and blue. During summer, Wilmington vacation rentals get booked up fast with weekenders, so grab yours early to avoid disappointment. While fall is quieter, the trees come alive with bright colors, and hiking through the parks and along the Ausable River are perhaps at their best. During the winter season, tourism picks up again, with travelers descending to ride the pistes on skis and snowboards.

Hawks and wolves near Wilmington

If you are a wildlife lover, be sure to visit the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge and Rehabilitation Center, a 50-acre reserve along the Ausable River. Here, you can see an astonishing variety of avifauna from red tailed hawks to Peregrine falcons, and several species of hooting owls. Drop in and take the guided wildlife hike which winds its way along the river banks and sloughs past dense forests and open meadows. Without doubt, the highlight for most is spotting the refuge's friendly resident wolves, who sometimes accompany you on the trail.
