I have been to the Emerson Place many times over the past 6 years, but I have never braved the World's Largest Kaleidoscope at the Emerson Country Store . The Emerson Place is a quiet group of stores next door to the Emerson Resort and Spa. There are a few fancy home decor stores (avoid them if you have wild toddlers), a nice toy store which specializes in kaleidoscopes, and a very chic and cozy snack bar that serves Starbucks coffee and Jane's Gourmet Ice Cream. (In case you have never tried Jane's Ice Cream, try it…It's amazing!) The snack bar/book store also sells homemade danishes, cookies and sandwiches. The Kaleidoscope show runs 10 minutes long and costs $5.40 for adults and is free for children 12 and under. It is sort of built like a miniature planetarium. When the lights go out, you can see Kaleidoscope patterns change on the ceiling. Today's show was "America, The House We Live In" which included many Americana, political images, and a very colorful 70s segment. It's good fun for kids and grown-ups! For more info visit http://www.kaleidostore.com. Emerson Country Store, 5340 Rt. 28, Mt. Tremper, NY (845) 688-5800. Shows run daily from 10am-5pm.
Good Stuff by Location
