Escape to the Adirondacks for a Great New York Fall Getaway Adirondack Region, N.Y. - The Adirondack Park is located less than an hour's drive north of Albany and four hours north of New York City, offering unparalleled outdoor recreation and family-friendly festivals amid colorful fall foliage for the perfect autumn weekend getaway. The Adirondack Region is larger than most national parks combined, offering six-million-acres of public and private lands unaffected by the U.S. Government shutdown. Located just a short drive from major metro areas in the northeast, the Adirondacks are a great alternative for travelers looking to have a wilderness park experience, but finding the gates closed at federally funded parks. This weekend, fall foliage colors are nearing their peak vibrancy, and with warmer temperatures expected to continue through mid-October, now is the perfect time to hike, paddle and drive around the Adirondack's mountains, lakes and rivers. Don't miss the Adirondack Region's exciting fall festival line-up continuing through the end of October. Upcoming festivals include:
- Adirondack Coast Wine, Cider & Food Festival - October 12 at the Crete Civic Center in Plattsburgh. Featuring locally sourced foods and drinks, samples, demonstrations and vendors.
- Penfield Homestead Museum's AppleFolkFest - October 13 at Crown Point. Enjoy a craft fair, flea market, music, homemade baked delicacies and apple desserts.
- Flaming Leaves Festival - October 12-13 in Lake Placid. Enjoy family-friendly fun, activities, barbecue, ski jumping exhibition and lawn games.
