Area ADK is a celebration of the Adirondacks, a nod to the classic campfire tale, a place to gather and tell stories. Share your story #VisitAdks
New horizons, familiar scenes, and new-found passions. We gather in the Adirondacks to experience a joy that transcends seasons. Through music, food, cultural events, and sport, we create a life filled with excitement and adventure.
Sometimes, the difference between a ripple and a rapid is the force of the current, the promise of the paddle and the thrill of the unknown.
It’s about unplugging, reconnecting, breathing deeply and taking in the beauty of your surroundings. It’s the tether that keeps you anchored, and the spirit that soars in the clouds.
The anticipation of the strike, the bend of the rod, the adrenaline rush that ensues. Join us as we explore world-class fishing waters in search of tight lines and the catch of a lifetime!
The stories we tell, the history we share, the threads that connect us to our past.
Take the road less traveled, the single track switch-back, the winding way that wraps around mountainsides and rivers. Grab the handles, clip in, and pedal hard.
Around the bend, beyond the horizon, lies a great wilderness that stretches the imagination. And the best way to gaze across its leafy mystery, to capture it and hold onto it – is to hike, fly or ride through it.
Through the lens, the world falls away and frame-by-frame, we capture and are captivated. Explore, create and connect.
The Adirondacks are for the passionate, the dreamers, the doers, the movers and the tasters. From farm to fork, harvest to pint glass, and vine to vintage, discover the unique flavors of the Adirondack region.
We travel to the Adirondacks to remember. Who we are, how far we’ve come. What we’re made of. To explore and create. To wander alone and to gather together.
The Adirondacks in Motion
