Want to get cozy en route to your visit to the Adirondacks? Stop in at this handsome LEED-certified welcome center to learn about this adventure-fueled region. Take a selfie in a chairlift from Gore Mountain or just relax by the faux fireplace with a snack from one of the nine Taste NY vending machines, featuring many local food items. Outside, you can take a load off in—what else?—Adirondack chairs, while the kids can enjoy a sprawling playground complete with a fire tower and zip line. There’s even a boat inspection and wash station for visitors heading out on the Hudson River or nearby lakes. Additional amenities include an animal comfort area.
NYS Department of Environmental Conservation offers a boat inspection and washing station at the facility to help prevent the spread of invasive species and preserve biodiversity within the Adirondack Park. (Call for boat wash hours of operation.)
