What Makes Saranac Lake So Cool?

Saranac Lake has been cool since the 19th century, when loggers came out of the forests as the leaves began to turn. They found themselves in the midst of a glorious fall and a postcard-perfect winter. They decided to make the most of it, and you should too!

The temperatures are cooling, and it's time to don those cozy fleece jackets and lace up those hiking boots. Autumn in Saranac Lake means it's time to get out and enjoy our grand views, live music, and vibrant arts scene!
