The Clock is Ticking

Take it from us: There's more than one way to get the most out of August in the Adirondacks!

1.

Views Made Easy

You’ll need to drive to hike some of the biggest mountains in the region, but there is plenty of scenery right in Lake Placid. Why not stay in town? Read on and we’ll have you tossing the car keys aside and setting off by foot or bike to four of our favorite jaw-dropping destinations.

Cycle Adirondacks Starts Here!

Those familiar with road cycling in the Schroon Lake region know all about the incredible 1-Eye Classic fall tour, the challenge and beauty of the Grand Loop, and, of course, the countless routes that link with Brant Lake’s own “The Hub” bike shop and bar. Yep, the area has all that and then some. But this summer, the “then some” includes none other than one of North America’s premier cycling tours – Cycle Adirondacks.

Catch of the Day

It was a fight for the ages, a battle of wits that ended with the triumph of man over beast. I caught a fish. But it wasn’t just any fish -- this was a beautiful, 30-inch long lake trout that weighed about 12 pounds.

Camp Saranac Lake

Whether we love the outdoors, want to learn to love the outdoors, or just long to sleep under the stars, Saranac Lake has many unique camping destinations. Make those dreams come true.

Paddle the Oswegatchie

When you look at the Adirondack Paddler's Map, the Oswegatchie River seems to be everywhere -- that is because it's 137 miles long!

Sweat Treats

Ice cream fans rejoice! This past National Ice Cream Day (yes, there is one and you should participate!) we went to some of our favorite ice cream places and got what we think is their specialty at each one. While there are many options at each of these stops, if you were to try and hit all five in one day, these are our suggestions.

Eat Me

The Adirondacks are a great place for many things such as hiking, paddling, and camping. But one of the things done really well here is food! I haven't had the chance to eat at all of the great restaurants we have here, but I do have quite a few of my own favorites.

Shop Local Art

Maybe it started back in the 1920s when the artist, activist, writer, and adventurer Rockwell Kent built Asgaard Farm. The Whiteface Region has had an element of artist's colony ever since.
