Come see what makes us decidedly different
Year-round, life in Saranac Lake is vibrant with fascinating and fun attractions, unique shops, eclectic eateries, and delightfully 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 snowy stroll through downtown and enjoy a self-guided walking tour of memorable sites. You'll also spot Walk of Fame plaques; each one celebrates a notable person’s connection to this community, such as physicist Albert Einstein, composer Bela Bartok, and author Robert Louis Stevenson.
Downtown is a place where the woods meet the pavement. A carefree stroll will let you discover pretty little parks, a lawn serpent sculpture, 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!
