Summer Destinations: Adirondacks

May 21, 2015

There are many great destinations for summer fun in the Adirondacks, including:

Clark's Beach Motel

Located in the Adirondack town of Old Forge, Clark's Beach Motel overlooks Old Forge pond. With friendly service and 41 guest rooms, you'll feel at home for your Adirondack stay, whether it be for play or relaxation. Clark's Beach Motel on the lake provides exceptional rooms which include a private screened balcony and one of the best views in Old Forge.

Howe Caverns

Howe Caverns is a family fun destination located in scenic Schoharie County, and the second most-visited natural attraction in the state of New York! The largest show cave in the northeast, Howe Caverns has been in operation since 1842. The main attraction is a living limestone cave, carved  by an underground river over the course of millions of years. It's located 156 feet below the Earth's surface (that's 15 stories). Learn the story of Lester Howe's discovery and experience a boat ride on the underground Lake of Venus. Specialty tours are available with advance reservations. Pan for your own semi-precious gems and fossils in the Gem & Mining Building or sample homemade fudge -- all at Howe Caverns!

Old Forge

Old Forge, the southwestern threshold of the Adirondack Park, has served as base camp for central New York travelers since the 1930s. Renowned as the paddling capital of the Adirondacks and snowmobile capital of the east, Old Forge is closely attuned to its natural resources year-round. Whether splashing through the water park, cruising the lakes, paddling the rivers, riding the rain or visiting the Adirondack's largest arts center, Old Forge has it all.
