Amazingly beautiful natural scenery is a year round attraction and can be found nearly everywhere. In Saranac Lake one can investigate the human history with a self-guided tour of the unique "cure cottage" architecture, or join Historic Saranac Lake for a walking tour with a stop in the Saranac Laboratory Museum. The Saranac Lake Free Library houses the Dickert Wildlife Collection and some of the same animals can be found as unique rides on the brand new Adirondack Carousel in William Morris Park.
There are museums like the world class Wild Center (Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks), located about 15 miles from Saranac Lake in nearby Tupper Lake and the Adirondack Museum an hour away in Blue Mountain Lake. Take the Adirondack Scenic Railroad to Lake Placid and visit the Olympic facilities.
Natural wonders like High Falls Gorge and Ausable Chasm are great to explore. Consider a drive up to the summit of Whiteface, the Olympic Mountain, for fantastic views. Or get lost in the Great Adirondack Corn Maze then shop in a local Farmer's Market and enjoy the local harvest.
Take a walking tour of Saranac Lake's historic park system. Designed by the renowned Olmsted brothers - the same firm that designed New York City's Central Park - Saranac Lake's
park system is owned by the Village Improvement Society, a not-for profit volunteer group that has cared for the parks since 1910.
It's easy to find something fun to do!
