Come see what makes us decidedly different
Saranac Lake is overflowing with offbeat attractions, funky little shops, eclectic eateries, awe inspiring art galleries, and places to catch live music. Kids love riding the Adirondack Carousel, and adults enjoy marveling at the hand-carved animals, which include an otter, a black fly, and a loon. And 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, stroll through downtown and see how many Walk of Fame plaques you can spot. Each 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. Be sure to explore it and you’ll 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!
