We love summer
Saranac Lake takes a decidedly different approach to embracing the warmer months. From scenic hikes through ancient wilderness to splashing in the shallows of a cool Adirondack lake, spring and summer in Saranac Lake is a nature lover's dream come true.
Make every day decidedly adventurous
Don’t even think about staying inside when you’re in Saranac Lake. There’s fun, adventure, and scenic beauty to be found in every direction!
Summer is the perfect time to tackle one or more of the Saranac Lake 6ers, a collection of six beautiful peaks near the village. You'll love the clean mountain air, and earn a patch for completing the challenge. And be sure to ring the bell in Berkely Square when you finish!
In addition to the crisp mountain air, our cold, clear streams hold plenty of trout; the dark water lakes hide bass, pike, plenty of lunkers, and unlimited paddling; the mountain trails will refresh and connect you with nature; and the spas will clear your mind and heal your body.
We are also home to some killer mountain and fat biking trails once the ground firms up. Check here for more information on the two-wheeled adventure that awaits.
A different kind of downtown
On full display are creative eateries, galleries, and shops. Whether you are looking for cultural and arts events, a quick swim, or a world-class menu to peruse, you’ll find downtown Saranac Lake is alive with all kinds of activity. We keep the excitement going year-round with a steady rotation of live music, eclectic art, and decadent dining.
Breathe deep, relax, and enjoy life Saranac Lake style! Find out more with our Visitor's Guide to Saranac Lake to get the inside scoop.
