Come see what makes us decidedly different

Autumn 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.

Plan that Saranac Lake leaf-peeping vacation as soon as possible, along with all the associated activities! Think colorful walks along the river, big mountain views, and fall flavors at local restaurants and breweries. 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.
