- At a Glance
In the dictionary next to the word "Zen," there should be a picture of the Adirondacks. Wend north from the New York State Thruway on to the mountain-framed country roads of the Empire State's northern reaches, and civilization drops away, a sense of peace washing over you like sunshine. Stretching eight counties, two-thousand miles of hiking trails and endless shores of lake, the region collectively known as Adirondack Park is a marvel of the modern era, a place protected since being legally declared "forever wild" more than a century ago. Today, six-million acres form an adventurer's paradise, whether your family's pleasure is hiking a summit, running the rapids, careening on an Olympic bobsled course, or wiling away the hours dallying on a tranquil lakeside dock. Adventure of a different sort is on the menu further south, where the beach-town kitsch of Lake George calls to those seeking roller coasters and water slides. But, it's nature that makes the Adirondacks unique, an instant antidote to even the most frenzied family's life. Sit back, breath in, and enjoy.

To some folks, you haven't really done the Adirondacks 'til you've done 'em by train. Even without the steam engine (the ones on the Scenic Railway are diesel), it's a little bit of old-time magic. ...
The big boat with the paddle wheel and the giant smokestack is a familiar sight in these parts, generating big smiles as it makes one-hour tours up and down the south end of Lake George....
Walk in the door of this cozy, half-century-old store, and just keep on walking. The Indian Tepee Gift Shop goes on forever. ...
