The Adirondacks is known for its scenery, villages and artisan shops. But let’s face it: the area is a recreational playground, and packing for all of those activities can seem daunting. We recommend you bring hiking boots, water bottles and active wear if you’re visiting during the summer — that way you’ll be prepared to paddle a lake or hike up a mountain. A camera is a must, as you’ll want to document the beauty of these backwoods. There’s also plenty to do when a blanket of snow covers the area, too. So be sure to bring boots, a down coat and the cold-weather works to prepare for all of the skiing and snowmobiling you’ll be doing.
