Come see what makes us decidedly different

Year-round, life in Saranac Lake is vibrant with fascinating and fun attractions, unique shops, locally-owned chef-run eateries, and engaging art galleries and studios. With a rich and unusual history, any time of year is good for stopping by the Saranac Laboratory Museum, where visitors can learn about the village’s history as a tuberculosis cure center. Afterward, enjoy a picture-perfect stroll through downtown and enjoy a self-guided walking tour of memorable sites.

Spring is the perfect time to get out and "do." The outdoor recreation is great for the colorful wildflowers, scenic drives abound, live music echos through downtown: the activity is endless! 

Downtown is a place where the woods meet the pavement. A carefree stroll will let you discover pretty parks, colorful murals, a relaxing river walk, and plenty of places where the nearby mountains peek from behind buildings. Beauty, art, music, and dining — it sounds like Saranac Lake!
