The Adirondacks of Northern New York

When the light of summer fades, and green landscapes transform into a surreal palette of red and gold, autumn has arrived in the Adirondacks – and with it, a new season of adventure.

Explore the Outdoors

Fall is the traditional harvest, when a field's bounty is brought in, and steins of beer lifted to toast a secure, well-fed winter ahead. The Adirondacks honor the harvest at Oktoberfest celebrations across the region, from the air during the annual Lake George hot air balloon festival, from the vine-covered paths of pumpkin patches, and the richly-scented air of apple orchards. This fall, discover the Adirondacks' take on the harvest and experience the best fall foliage in NY.

Fuel Your Adventure

The Adirondacks is a place where nature rules – and that includes the food and drink! With a growing focus on sustainable and back-to-basics agriculture, local farms, cheese shops, wineries, breweries and cideries are taking sophisticated palettes by storm. Our community of makers and producers are the agricultural artisans of the Adirondacks, and they're feeding the Region with wholesome, high-quality products that you can purchase right from the farm store, tasting room, or road-side stand. Here in the Adirondacks, it's not just a meal, it's a movement.

The Adirondack Regions
The Adirondack Region features over 100 welcoming communities, mountains, lakes, verdant valleys and steep cliffs.
Spanning more than six million acres with over 100 welcoming communities, the Adirondack Region is home to the largest protected natural area in the lower 48. Like a patchwork quilt, the Adirondacks are made up of twelve distinct regional destinations, each offering their own brand of Adirondack adventure. From the endless canoeing and kayaking in the Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake regions, to the extensive hiking trails of the High Peaks Wilderness in the Lake Placid Region - discover an area as diverse in geography as it is in activities and events. Bicycle between wineries on the Adirondack Coast, or dive to sunken shipwrecks in the Adirondack Seaway near the Canadian Border. You're invited to explore the Lake George Region's family-friendly attractions and discover the Adirondack Tug Hill Plateau's one-of-a-kind recreation opportunities.
