2016 TOP 3 BLOGS IN REVIEW

We scoured our blogs for the most popular, most informative, and just downright oddest pieces from the past year. In case you missed them when they were first published, here are our top three picks from the Saranac Lake Region. Enjoy!


3) Five cool fall views

There are many, many places to view our spectacular autumn foliage. In the interest of easy access, we've narrowed it down to these five favorites for fabulous leaf-peeping - each one has a special attraction.

Name that view! 

2) History is cool

When it was announced that the Hotel Saranac would open again, with a classic refurbishment befitting its historic landmark status, the entire village was thrilled. Out of thirteen hotels which once flourished in town, Hotel Saranac —  the first "fully fireproof" hotel in the North Country — is the only one left. Ready for your cool hotel history lesson? 

Welcome back!

1) Cool as ice

In winter, our friendly forests grow hushed with snow, and our lovely lakes freeze over. We are dedicated to having fun all year 'round, and that includes a few creative options. Have you participated in these cool icy activities?

We know how to have fun with ice!

About The Author

My son's favorite question is, "what are we doing fun today?" On the weekends, you would think we were visitors: we like to take advantage of the numerous activities that travelers to the region drive hours to partake in. Most of our adventures are spur of the moment, inspired by something we have read about in the events calendar, online, or through word-of-mouth from coworkers and friends. Sometimes we choose a family-friendly hike such as Cobble Hill or a walk around Mirror Lake, other days you can find us biking on random backroads outside of Saranac Lake, or camping in one of the numerous spots within driving distance to our home-base: along the beautiful Adirondack Coast of Lake Champlain, in the mountainous tract that encompasses Schroon Lake, or further west into the Old Forge area. Some weekends, we do all of the above. We are an ambitious crew that ranges in size depending on the weekend - often dragging visiting family and friends along for the fun. We love a good adventure, and admittedly I like a good deal (who doesn’t?) so I can often be found whipping out my smart phone to see what’s happening on the cheap. Say, 'Hi' and pose for my camera if you see us coming through - you'll recognize us by the enthusiastic 6-yo leading the way!
