As the weather turns coolor and summer turns to fall, there are plenty of great fall themed activities to participate in.  Experience harvest festivals, visit farms and u-picks and pick your own fresh produce, or just take a drive and take in the great view.

Of course no trip to the Adirondacks would be complete without visiting a local maple producer.  Maple sugaring is an Adirondack tradition and you’d really be missing out if you didn’t take the chance to see how it’s all done and to get a delicious treat directly from the source!

Autumn is a great time to visit the Adirondacks, not only for the spectacular views, but also because it’s harvest season.  Many restaurants in the Adirondacks practice a farm-to-table operation, meaning they use fresh, locally sourced ingredients whenever possible.  You’ll find many wonderful places to eat that have created fresh, seasonal menus inspired by the Adirondacks.

The unique mixture of publicly and privately owned land throughout Adirondack Park creates a splendid mix of places to stay.  There are large, luxurious lakeside resorts surrounded by a charming village or hamlet, and there are cozy, secluded cottages for two out in the Adirondack Wild.  Find the lodging that suits your needs and that helps you experience the Adirondacks to its fullest.

Adirondack Park in the fall is an absolutely breathtaking experience that everyone should see at least once.   Relax while you’re surrounded by the tranquility of the mountains and watch the seasons change before your eyes.
