If you’re looking for the best of outdoor adventures, as well as family fun attractions, then it’s time to start planning your Adirondack family vacation at The Alpine Lodge! Named one of the “Best Family Trips” by National Geographic, the Adirondacks feature pristine lakes and quaint towns scattered across beautiful mountains.
The First Adirondack Vacation
Adirondack family vacations have been a tradition since the mid-1800s. In fact, many historians believe that the Adirondacks were the birthplace of the American vacation. Starting with William H.H. Murray’s first guidebook in 1869, families began “vacating” cities, such as Boston and New York, to escape the summer’s heat and humidity. They came in droves to breathe fresh mountain air and explore the untouched wilderness. And so, the term “vacation” was coined.
Abundant in natural beauty, the Adirondacks provide visitors with access to more than 6 million acres of woodland, rocks, rivers, lakes and mountains to explore. It’s no wonder that generations of families have chosen this beautiful area for their Adirondack summer family retreat.
