We celebrate summer
Saranac Lake takes a decidedly different approach to enjoying the summer season. There’s always a festive spirit in the air, whether it’s found dancing to live music or getting out on the water for a moonlit paddle. In June, we spend the entire month celebrating all the ways you can paddle our waterways with Celebrate Paddling ADK, which will include clinics, guided tours, and fun festivities. Beginners are welcome! We have the gear if you don’t!
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!
The Saranac Lake 6ers are calling, so work on that 6er patch by hiking these six beautiful peaks.
With three Saranac lakes — Upper, Middle, and Lower — all connected by the Saranac River, it’s hard to resist paddling and boating. If that’s not your thing you can still soak up the sun and views at our public beach, Lake Colby.
We are also home to some killer mountain biking trails. 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, and a locally loved seasonal farmers market in a nature-lover's paradise. Whether you are looking for cultural and arts events, a quick paddle, or a locally grown heirloom tomato, you’ll find downtown Saranac Lake is bustling with all kinds of activity.
We keep the excitement going year round with a steady rotation of live music, eclectic art, and decadent dining. Summer is a great time to check out our arts scene at Thursday ArtWalks and free live music at the Waterhole’s Party on the Patio series and at Music on the Green at Berkeley Green.
Pay us a visit this summer and travel light, breathe deep, and enjoy life Saranac Lake style! Find out more with our Visitor's Guide to Saranac Lake to get the inside scoop.
