The Adirondacks of Northern New York

It's summertime in the Adirondacks, and longer days mean more time to explore. Dust off your hiking boots, grab your paddles, head down to the farmers' market and light up the campfire. The only thing better than the experience is the view.

Fresh Fuel for your Adventure

The Adirondacks is a place where nature rules, and that includes the food. With a growing focus on sustainable and back-to-basics agriculture, local farms, wineries, and breweries are taking center stage. From farmers markets to local shops and restaurants, these agricultural artisans are feeding the Adirondacks with wholesome, high-quality products. It's not just a meal, it's a movement.

Explore the Outdoors

Summer is adventure season in the Adirondacks. Explore hiking trails; watch Macbeth at a local theater, or meander through a vineyard to enjoy a Friday night wine down. Whatever your brand of adventure, the Adirondacks await! Grab a canoe and paddle some of the most secluded waters in the Northeast. If adrenaline is more your speed, mountain biking, rock climbing, and whitewater rafting will satisfy your need for the extreme. 

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.
