Tupper Lake, Adirondacks
With summer on its way, there's a lot to look forward to in Tupper Lake. There's a welcoming, family friendly atmosphere here all year round. Visitors find it in the fascinating nature-themed learning centers, the quaint downtown, and the mellow hiking trails that end in outstanding views. The region's outstanding lakes will soon be crisscrossed by boaters, paddlers, and fishermen, and golfers will flock to the vista-infused fairways of the Tupper Lake Golf Club as soon as the snow retreats. Until then, let's connect with spring.
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. Once summer hits, the Wild Walk -- a series of catwalks through the treetops -- opens.
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.
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.
