Experience the magnificent beauty of the Adirondacks by climbing aboard the Adirondack Scenic Railroad  for a unique perspective of the surrounding Mountains and countryside. The train even has a Café Car where you can enjoy food, wine and beer along the way !

At special times throughout the year, the railroad runs “Special Trains,” which feature thrilling productions such as magic trains, clown trains, wine trains, train robberies, fall scenic cruises and, of course, a magical trip with Santa Claus to the North Pole on The POLAR EXPRESS™ train.


.. Ride in one of the vintage, climate controlled coaches or get closer to nature in an open car, as you travel through forests, past sparkling rivers and over bridges, ponds and streams.

While in Old Forge, round out your weekend getaway with a cruise through the lakes of the Fulton Chain on Old Forge Lake Cruises  or have some wet and wild excitement at the Enchanted Forest Water Safari, New York's largest water theme park.

Kick back and enjoy excellent dining and refreshment options like the Mountainside Smokehouse and Grill or Five Corners Café. Book a room at the rustic and picturesque Big Moose Inn or the White House Inn, a cozy B&B in the quaint village of Old Forge.
