Carve out some time for fun this fall

Saranac Lake, New York takes all of its seasons seriously, but the crisp, cool autumn air is what it's all about. The mountains, lakes, and rivers take on a different scene as hikers lace up their boots to take the mountains, fishermen and women ready their reels, and paddlers set out on the water. So whether you're coming for a day or a week, looking to get adventurous or simply relax, enjoy all the spectacle and sights that mean a spectacular fall in the Adirondack Mountains. 

Just don't forgot to pack your camera and take a scenic drive through some of the most amazing fall foliage in the East!

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! 

Take a hike right from downtown up a mountain or along the Saranac River, or head over to Lake Colby for a great day of fishing. We have fun, fall-only activities and events, making it possible to combine outdoor recreation with arts and culture in one awesome day! Don’t worry, there is plenty of authentically Adirondack food to go around. 

For something a little different, check out The Great Adirondack Corn Maze, a favorite attraction of locals and visitors alike.

A different kind of downtown

On full display are creative eateries, galleries, and shops. Whether you are looking for cultural and arts events 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, unique art, and decadent dining. Bold and fun originality shine through in the many art galleries and studios. This is a downtown rich in history and infused with nature in a way that only Saranac Lake can pull off.
