Sunday drives. Those two simple words evoke a special sense of calm. When I was young, my parents often piled my brother and me into the car and took off with no real destination in mind. We would take turns choosing right or left at intersections, and wherever we ended up we felt as though we had discovered a secret. With so much natural beauty in the Adirondacks, it’s not hard to find a scenic drive. But what about the destinations?
Tucked into small towns and down back roads, the Adirondacks is home to countless hidden gems just waiting to be discovered! They all have a story, a unique flair, and a treasure in store for you. They also make for some of the best one-stop shops you’ll ever find. Consider it retail therapy on the road. From tasty treats to arts, crafts, and odd knicknacks, you can find a little bit of everything. So the next time you need to relax, get in the car and turn your wheels toward these one-stop shops.
