Let the fun begin!

Saranac Lake is a town unlike any other. Located among the mountains and lakes of the Adirondacks, it inspires visitors to play, create, relax, and enjoy their time in a decidedly different way. Pack your hiking boots, and get ready for the mountain vacation you've been dreaming of.

Make every day decidedly adventurous

Don’t even think about staying inside when you’re here! There’s adventure and scenic beauty to be found everywhere! Take a hike from downtown or head to Lake Colby for a day of ice fishing. Fun events mix recreation with arts and culture in a remarkable creative community. Don’t worry, there's authentically Adirondack food, too. 

A different kind of downtown

Creative eateries, galleries, and shops are all around, along with year-round live music. Whether you are looking for cultural and arts events or a world-class menu, you’ll find downtown Saranac Lake full of activity. This is a downtown rich in history and infused with nature in a way that only Saranac Lake can pull off.

Breathe deep, relax, and enjoy life Saranac Lake style! Find out more with our Visitor's Guide to Saranac Lake.
