Summer is in full bloom in the Adirondacks, and our deep lakes and towering mountains are alive with lush, green beauty that beckons you to explore.
Revel and reel during annual festivals, shop for luscious fruits and artisan crafts at farmers' markets or simply enjoy sinking into an Adirondack chair
on a quiet lake after a long hike in the mountains.
Summer is the time for new adventures like whitewater rafting on the Hudson River, wind surfing on Lake Champlain, mountain biking on rugged trails and stand-up paddle boarding on just about any of the Adirondack Region's 3,000 lakes, rivers and streams. The Adirondacks are a place for adventure and discovery – and summer is the season for road trips. Grab a map, pack some snacks and a swim suit, and make for the Adirondacks of Northern New York.
The summer season unfolds with sporting competitions that pit athletes against the elements, open-air music festivals that will have you dancing under the stars and craft fairs that ensnare with the scent of fresh funnel cakes, strawberry shortcake, and farm fresh veggies and fruits. From mountain bike races to horse show competitions, sailing regattas to 4th of July fireworks – the Adirondacks welcome you to revel and relax this summer.
