Your Winter Getaway To The Adirondacks Awaits

Winter is here, and while many people like to run away to the sun and the sand, our favorite destination in the winter is right in our backyard, Saranac Lake in The Adirondacks.

Saranac Lake offers many things for visitors, from a reawakened downtown lined with restaurants and shops, to festive events, to cold-weather outdoor activities. Here are some of our favorites:

New Year’s Eve Celebration First Night

The First Night celebrations offers a shared cultural celebration to mark the passing of the previous year and beginning of the new one. More than a dozen acts in ten different venues will entertain you. Each performance lasts about one hour, and seating is first come, first served. Fireworks are lit off at midnight over Lake Flower.

Saranac Lake Winter Carnival

Running from February 1-10, the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival is a week of sporting events, parades, a gala, fireworks, and more. The carnival starts and ends with amazing fireworks displays. Miss the carnival? Don’t worry you can enjoy the ice palace all winter long!

Fall Fun On The Vineyard

Just because the sun has set on summertime, does not mean the fun is over on Martha’s Vineyard. In fact, the fall is one of the best times of the year to visit. The island boasts beautiful fall foliage, much smaller crowds than during the summer months, and the calendar is jam-packed with festivals and events throughout the fall season. Here is a guide on the best events to attend on Martha’s Vineyard this fall:

Harbor View

Martha’s Vineyard Food & Wine Festival

Wine and foodies alike will gather for four days and nights of wine tastings and special events to celebrate the Island’s rich tradition of farming and fishing. The events will introduce guests to local culinary talent, farmers, and oyster producers, while also bringing in guest chefs and vintners from Boston and beyond. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Martha’s Vineyard Agricultural Society, whose annual grant program assists and perpetuates agriculture on Martha’s Vineyard.
