BOOK YOUR TRIP
Downtown Saranac Lake
An urban vibe where creative energy flows freely

 Saranac Lake's historic downtown is the perfect place to spend some time. There are galleries, gardens, artists' studios, gift shops, park benches, restaurants, small businesses, and regular concerts in our parks. This is the place where it all comes together, where music, art, and great mountain energy merge to create a lively scene.

Free parking is available in several locations, so park and take a stroll. Historic signage identifies some of the notable buildings. Maps for a historic walking tour can be obtained from Historic Saranac Lake at the Saranac Laboratory Museum on Church Street. Watch for the signs that mark the entry ways to the RiverWalk and enjoy following the brick path along the Saranac River as it winds through town. Dine in one of the restaurants or get a take-out meal and sit at the picnic tables in Riverside Park.

Saranac Lake has also made history by being home to the first and only locally developed, community-owned department store, The Village Mercantile of Saranac Lake. A family-friendly, walking community, Saranac Lake invites you to bring your children to the Adirondack Carousel and playground in William Morris Park. Step back in time and enjoy the old-fashioned, hometown atmosphere of Saranac Lake.

Experience a day downtown!
