From a quick weekend getaway to breathe in the brisk mountain air, to a week-long family hiking trip, with so much to see and do, it's never too early to begin planning your vacation. If you're looking for family activities we have plenty to choose from. Here in the Adirondacks, we have endless mountains to hike including the 46 High Peaks, acres to hunt and mountains to ski or ride down. Our vast evergreen forests are just waiting for you to explore, the hardest part is deciding which of our many outdoor activities you want to start with. Choose terrain ranging from quiet country roads to scenic mountain passes.

Enjoy the fresh mountain air while taking in the beautiful views. While you are in town, stop at one of the Olympic venues or look at our events calendar and attend one that is coming up.
