Saranac Lake ©
Saranac Lake is a village in the state of New York, United States. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Adirondack Artists Guild and Camp Santanoni. Ticonderoga Historical Society and St. Eustace Episcopal Church will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Saranac Lake side-trips: Dartbrook Rustic Goods (in Keene) and Paradox Brewery (in Schroon Lake). There's much more to do: ski along the peaceful trails at Paul Smith's College VIC, trek along Brewster Peninsula Nature Trails, admire all the interesting features of 1932 Jack Shea Arena, and learn about winemaking at Swedish Hill Winery Tasting Room.

Plan my trip to Saranac Lake with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Washington DC to Saranac Lake is an approximately 8.5-hour car ride. You can also fly. When traveling from Washington DC in April, plan for a bit cooler days and cooler nights in Saranac Lake: temperatures range from 49°F by day to 25°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) early enough to travel to Cooperstown.
