What a way to start the summer vacation season! This is the official kick off. Doesn’t it feel great to know the winter is gone and summer is coming? If you have the extended weekend off come to the central Adirondack region. So much to see, so much to do. All the businesses will be geared up and ready to go.
Come to nature incarnate, the Adirondacks is a national park that is protected and deemed “forever wild”. Go boating, fishing, water skiing, golfing, tubing, jet skiing, hiking, mt. biking, kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding, white water rafting or go to a beach (bet you didn’t know almost ever lake has sandy beaches) for some swimming and golden sunbathing. You can relax in the palpable silence of these mountains, gain access to dozens of scenic lakes or find adventure everywhere to fulfill your weekend getaway. Bring your sweetheart or the whole family.
But there is also so much history here. Discover how William Durant created the “Great Camps” for the richest families of the industrial revolution and started a new architectural style that permeates the whole region. Durants’ architectural creations over the centuries have become mainstream and contributed to the “naturalist” movement. Take the Heritage Tour to Sagamore one of W Durants’ first camp creations, onto the wondrous Adirondack Museum and finally a lunch cruise tour on Racquette Lake for a fabulous day outing. Did you know that Prospect Point in Blue Mt Lake had the first hotel in the world with electricity? That there is the Cultural Center in Blue Mt Lake and there is Wild Center in Tupper Lake? Come, discover the richness of this region.
Blue Mt Lake is where the Adirondacks Museum is and is the central hub of all this activity. For lodging on lakefront properties there is The Hedges, Prospect Pt Cottages, Hemlock Hall, Curry’s Cabins and La Pairie’s. A B & B at the Blue Mt Lake Inn and Blue Mt Rest if you are looking for affordable comfortable accommodations that include fully equipped kitchens.
