It’s summer. What are you doing about it? Well, with businesses opening up, there’s a chance you can still do summer in a secure environment. Today, we explore what you can do in the Adirondacks, with social distancing and everything else safe and sensible.
The 46ers as the mountains are known, because of the 46 peaks that make it up, needs to be surveyed. The High Peaks of these mountains are over 4000ft. Now that you have time, you can become a member of the 46ers by climbing all the peaks.
Businesses have been hit and will appreciate the tiny bump they get every time you decide to shop local. There are many handmade artisans in the Adirondacks, the famous maple syrup being only one of the many businesses of the region. There are chocolatiers, like Adirondack Chocolates in Lake Placid, to handmade potters like Cherri Cross at Jay Craft Center in Jay, and even leather shops like The Leather Artisan in Childwold.
If online classes get tedious, use nature at Adirondacks as your own backyard to learn about the flora and fauna of the land. Adirondack Riverwalking and Forest Bathing will allow you to learn about the different species of trees, insects, animals, flowers and more.
The many greens like Tupper Lake Golf Club, Inlet Golf Course, Sarnac Lake Golf Club and Lake Placid Golf Club Hole 9 Green are open for a few rounds of golf. An ideal way to socially distance and get some steps in, until the gyms open up at least.
We’re betting you hadn’t considered all these options. If you’re out and about, you will support local business and as they say, what goes around…
Stay safe, stay healthy.
