Tupper Lake, Adirondacks
Summer is here, and there's a lot to discover in Tupper Lake. The welcoming, family-friendly atmosphere draws visitors who love to explore our fascinating nature-themed learning centers, quaint downtown, and mellow hiking trails, which deliver breathtaking views. The Tupper Lake Triad is a great checklist of mountains for casual hikers to complete -- one of them, Goodman Mountain, is even wheelchair accessible for the first portion of the trail.
Tupper Lake is way more than mountains, though. The region's outstanding lakes are always being crisscrossed by boaters, paddlers, and fishermen, and golfers flock to the vista-infused fairways of the Tupper Lake Golf Club to enjoy a side of scenery with their swings.
Kids, nature lovers, and the curious will all love a visit to The Wild Center, a world-renowned museum that's focused on all things natural in the Adirondacks. Inside, visitors can see live otter shows, learn about Adirondack ecosystems, and come face-to-face with all sorts of local critters like ducks, porcupines, ravens, and turtles. Outside, a series of well-maintained trails beckons to be discovered, and the Wild Walk -- a series of catwalks through the treetops -- is not to be missed. Just imagine an Ewok adventure with a myriad of Adirondack-inspired sites and you'll start to get the idea!
In Tupper Lake, the wonder doesn't end at the forest canopy. Visit the Adirondack Public Observatory and its roll-off-roof observatory to see the universe up close. The variety of telescopes available make stargazing a snap, as do the clear night skies of the region. Stop in for a free Friday night stargazing session when the sky is clear.
There's no shortage of restaurant options here, and beer lovers will be thrilled to learn there are also two outstanding breweries -- Big Tupper Brewing and Raquette River Brewing. The former has a full restaurant, the latter has a food cart and an awesome outdoor pavilion that hosts live music in summer.
