Saranac Lake has a long history with health, fitness and revitalization. Since the 1850s the Adirondacks have been a popular luxury resort destination, and beginning in the 1880s Saranac Lake was world renowned for the healing properties of its fresh air.
It’s tradition of health and revitalization continues. Today it is a great place to visit for its many hiking trails, lakes, where boating and fishing are popular, cycling, and many other activities.
As Dr. Trudeau discovered in the 19th century, it’s also a fantastic place to come and just relax. Sit at the lakeside and read you favorite book while sitting in an Adirondack chair, or stroll down Saranac Lake’s charming downtown and take in some of their art galleries. Or perhaps bring your camera or sketchbook along and let the natural beauty of the Adirondacks inspire you!
