Shopping, two state parks, several marinas, and even the National Comedy Center can be found circling Lake Chautauqua.
The western New York and Eastern pannhandle of Pennsylvania include several hidden gems in their parks and beaches, all of which are within 30 to 45 minutes drive from Peek N' Peak and our Ski Birdie Lodge.

Way underrated, the New York side of Niagara Falls allows you to immerse yourself in the organic beauty of this natural wonder without all the commercialized distractions. An easy two-hour drive from Peek N' Peak and our Ski Birdie Lodge is all it takes to enjoy a breathtakingly spectacular view of the falls from Niagara Falls State Park. Pack a cooler, bring your walking shoes and bikes and plug Goat Island into your GPS (GPS address: 24 Buffalo Avenue, Niagara Falls, NY 14303). Once here, you are steps away from as about as close as you can get to the falls without going over.
