As the Adirondack's coolest place, we revel in the brightening colors of autumn. With the incredible backdrop of lakes and mountains and our uniquely New England mix of trees, we might just have the very best fall color anywhere. Look for the scarlet flame of maple, the bright red of northern hardwood, the bronzes of oaks and hickory, and the gold of aspens and birches. This glorious display has inspired many of our local artists. It’s a great way to take the memories home. Discover the area’s complete calendar of art events.
