Saranac Lake
Come for the outdoors, stay for the vibe!

We celebrate fall

Saranac Lake takes a decidedly different approach to enjoying fall. There’s still a festive, warm-weather spirit in the air, whether it’s found dancing to live music or  getting out on the water for a moonlit paddle. This fall kicks off Labor Day weekend with the new Northern Current Music Festival, a free outdoor event that will bring an impressive lineup of bands to Saranac Lake.

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! 

Fall is the perfect time to hike the Saranac Lake 6ers, a collection of six beautiful peaks near the village. You'll love the crisp air, and the colorful vistas can't be beat.

You can also try your luck with fishing — hire a guide, cast into Lake Colby, or head deep into the Saint Regis Canoe Area to drop a line. 

With three Saranac lakes — Upper, Middle, and Lower — all connected by the Saranac River, it’s hard to resist paddling and boating. You'll see all of the region's fall colors without having to climb a mountain. 

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 eateriesgalleries and shops. Whether you are looking for cultural and arts events, a quick paddle, or a world-class menu to peruse, 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 musiceclectic art, and decadent dining.

Pay us a visit this fall 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.
