If you're in New York while the seasons are changing from summer to fall it is an absolute must to take a trip up to The Adironadacks!
The speckled forestry of golden yellows, jadestone greens, sunset reds, and carnelian oranges are like a vivid in-motion oil painting. The 6-hour drive from the city was softened by the impeccable views of boisterous river and serene lakes. I primarily stayed in Lake Placid, but had the pleasure of viewing other areas of the High Peaks, Lake Placid Region.
Despite what kind of traveler you may be, enjoy all that nature has to offer, be present with the scenery, indulge and be active. Take advantage of the tranquility; kayak on the many lakes, hike a panoramic mountain trail, just enjoy your surroundings!

Dack Shack - What I love most about small towns, are the multi-faceted use of spaces; located in the same cabin like building is a "gourmet" deli that offers an amazing assortment of baked goods.
Recommendations: Anything with the maple glazed bacon!
Tail O'The Pub - Be ready to inhale the fragrant aroma of charcoal and simmering meat! With a communal vibe its a perfect place to visit with your family.
