Vacation Upstate NY Adirondacks mountain lakes


An hour East of the Thousand Islands/Seaway trail and Central Erie Canal Corridor, the Western Adirondacks invites you to choose adventure any time of the year. Traveling to the area is an easy journey from any direction, and the recreational activities are well worth the scenic drive.

 

Towns like Old Forge and Lowville offer mouthwatering dining experiences as well as unique attractions for the entire family, and 32 of the wettest and wildest water rides are found at the Enchanted Forest Water Safari, NY's largest water theme park in Old Forge.

Boasting beauty and a diversity like nowhere else, the Adirondacks will surely bring out the adventurer in you! In the Spring and Summer months, hiking, mountain climbing, and biking are popular, and the more than 200 ponds, rivers and lakes offer incredible recreational opportunities for fishing, canoeing in the crystal clear mountain waters, kayaking down river rapids, diving to sunken shipwrecks, wildlife observation, and more.
 

Great Pines Lodge, Adirondacks
SSkiing and Snowmobiling rule the Wintertime, and abundant snowfalls bring nearly 600 miles of snowmobile trails to life, transforming the Adirondacks and northern Tug Hill Plateau into a winter playground for all ages.


Even the term "vacation" is said to have originated in the Adirondacks, when well-to-do New Yorkers in the Early 1900's would "vacate" their sweltering New York City dwellings in hot Summer months and retreat to the refreshing climate of the Northern woods!
