Lake Placid Region

Part of the greater Adirondack Park, the Lake Placid Region is home to extensive hiking trails with views that will rival the beloved New York City skyline. Known as the High Peaks Wilderness, your spirit for adventure will come alive in this breathtaking part of the mountains. Kayak on Mirror Lake, toast marshmallows at your rustic campsite, or revel in the views at the legendary lookouts— whatever you choose to do at Lake Placid, you will be in awe. 

Letchworth State Park

Trade the city’s fountains for Inspiration Falls, New York state’s tallest plunging natural waterfall, splashing to the ground in Letchworth State Park after a 350-foot fall. When it comes to fun things to do in upstate New York, Letchworth State Park has hot air balloon rides, white-water rafting, 600-foot cliff walls, horseback tours, and hundreds of hiking trails along the Genesee River. 

Boldt Castle

Head to Heart Island in the middle of Alexandria Bay for an upstate New York experience unlike any other: Boldt Castle. Back in 1900, millionaire George C. Boldt commissioned the build of a castle in honor of his wife Louise. When she passed before construction was complete, the build was stopped and it sat abandoned for decades. Now, it has been restored and is a modern marvel for those in Mamaroneck looking for a unique adventure not far from home. 

Wild Walk

Trying to see the forest through the trees? At the high line of the Adirondack Forest, you quite literally can. Walk on elevated hiking trails through the canopy of the glorious trees in upstate New York at the recently-constructed Wild Walk. From tree houses to giant nests and cool swinging bridges, this experience gives you a view of upstate New York’s beauty like none other.
