Renowned for its natural beauty and rugged landscape, the Adirondacks are a true four-season fun spot! Warm summer days invite boating, fabulous fishing, swimming and watersports of all kinds. Fall is unmatched in its beauty and colorful splendor, when the mountain peaks don their finest for a breathtaking display. As the days shorten, a winter wonderland quietly emerges, complete with Olympic-style attractions (Lake Placid was the site of the 1932 and 1980 Olympic Winter Games), skiing, and thousands of miles of groomed snowmobile trails. Suddenly and often unexpectedly, spring emerges lush, green and bursting with life in one of Mother Nature's most dramatic spectacles.
