Attractions in the Adirondacks

Activities for the Whole Family

So much to see and do

In the Adirondacks, our biggest attraction of course is the Adirondacks – a vast, pristine playground of balsam forests, mountain peaks and deep lakes offering unparalleled outdoor recreation. Be sure to consider a tour or excursion while visiting to take in as much scenery as you can.

Adirondack Great Camps

Discover Great Camps along the shores of Raquette Lake. Explore the lake in style aboard the W. W. Durant Cruise Ship and enjoy a dinner cruise complete with evening entertainment against the spectacular colors of an Adirondack sunset.

Another one of the region's unique Adirondack attractions is Great Camp Sagamore, a former Vanderbilt Great Camp, and now a National Historic Landmark. Sagamore offers overnight accommodations in storied Adirondack Great Camp luxury. Tours of the buildings and grounds, as well as special events are open to the general public throughout the year.

Arts and Culture

Here you will find the region's famous Adirondack Experience, The Museum on Blue Mountain Lake, where you can experience live exhibits, regional history, and everything that makes the Adirondacks a unique place to visit, located in Blue Mountain Lake.
Be certain you will find plenty of other attractions in the Adirondacks. Browse our multiple museums and art offerings throughout the region.
