Great walkable town with access to many trails and local shops. Accessible to local skiing, attractions and hiking.

Such a quaint area and lake. Beautiful in the early evening. We drove around it and stopped at some of the sites. Loved it.

The scenery around Saranac Lake is fine but the town has no activity and looks deserted. Not a pleasant experience. Lake Placid is a much better choice

More sedate than Lake Placid, there are lakes and hiking trails in all directions. The downtown is cute and struggling. There were some restaurants we wanted to try, but the paired back schedule during Covid 19 meant those at the top of our list were dark. This is a great place for people who hike, canoe, ski and enjoy outdoor sports. For those of us who prefer the indoor activities, a little bland.

We spent the afternoon here passing through to lake placid from tupper lake. The water in the river and the lake is just beautiful. The shops are fun to walk in and out of. Everyone was so nice. What a great stop.
