Our bloggers bike, camp, hike, fish, and leaf peep for fall fun.
Peak Foliage and Hot Apple Cider Have Arrived!
Fall is a fine time for fishing. The cooler temperatures make the fish hungry, for one thing. Trout, in particular, are looking to fatten up to prepare themselves for the rigors of spawning. For some timely tips on this loveliest of all fishing seasons, I consulted with Glen Zarboni of Hook 'Em Solid guide services.
If you can camp it, you can glamp it
Imagine camping in total comfort. I’m not just talking about a good sleeping pad and a waterproof tent, I mean true luxury. I’m talking about glamping, the outdoor-chic sensation sweeping the nation. Glamour camping is no longer just for A-list celebrities at Coachella and Insta-famous explorers in an exotic country. You, too, can go glamping at the Wilmington KOA!
Sculpture in the park
There's a sculpture park in the town of Wells that is open for group tours by appointment. The Adirondack - Sacandaga River Sculpture Park features the work of internationally recognized sculptor John Van Alstine, on the grounds of a 19th century wood products mill.
Leaves, apples, and donuts
The Lake Champlain Region is prepared to offer you a warm welcome during the cooler days of autumn. October also brings some annual festivals that we look forward to every year. Here are a couple, coming up rather quickly, that might entice you to visit.
Brewtiful Lake Placid
This summer, Lake Placid welcomed three new caffeine slinging cafes and I couldn't be happier about it! Each with their own offerings and charm, the new players in town are worthy of a visit on your next trip to Lake Placid. From stunning views, farm fresh food, and coffee to fuel your Adirondack adventure, these new cafes are local-approved additions to help create your own perfect Lake Placid day.
Einstein's vacation spot
The Knollwood Club was created to solve a late 19th-century problem: going on vacation as someone of the Jewish faith. At that time, many hotels and country clubs were "restricted," as the term was known. Six friends wanted to summer in the Adirondacks together and decided to build their own shared Great Camp.
Bike to foliage
Fall is here and it is my favorite time to get on my bike and go for a ride. I find it so peaceful, to go for a ride and take in the beautiful colors on the leaves. I love to pack a lunch, throw my bike on my car, and see where the day will take me. Check out some of my favorite rides.
Fall is for camping
It was already dark when I pulled into our campsite with my dog, Wren, ready to pitch up our tent and prepare for a night in the cooling, early fall woods. For some people, the camping season ends with the end of summer, but I love fall camping, and soon had the tent set up and had started the task of fixing dinner.
