Scenic Drives

In the Adirondacks, our scenic roadways offer some of the prettiest views and panoramic vistas found in the entire six-million-acre Adirondack Park. Charming towns and villages provide a variety of unique attractions, from community festivals to open-air theatrical productions. In summer, find seasonal roadside stands offering everything from handmade rustic goods to locally produced honey.

Each fall, the Adirondacks lush, green landscape is transformed into an artist's palette of vibrant colors. Leaf peepers can enjoy entire forests of golden aspen, beech and birch, as well as vermilion sugar maple. Drive along quiet country routes and discover tucked-away historic treasures like Great Camp Sagamore and Raquette Lake.

Travel through the wilds of Raquette Lake and glimpse wildlife such as deer, boreal birds and the occasional moose. Miles of picturesque shoreline offer a charming picture, as well as incredible boating and paddling opportunities. Follow a meandering country road, or enjoy the simple pleasure of watching the road unfold ahead.
