A new scenic railroad is due to open later this month, carrying passengers from Saratoga Springs along the Hudson River, to North Creek. The train should bring a boost of tourism to North Creek area shops, restaurants and attractions.
We all want to explore the great outdoors, but for beginners it's hard to find a place to start and for experienced outdoor enthusiasts it's easy to do the same thing over and over.
Situated in the central Adirondacks, the Thendara Golf Club in Thendara NY offers a challenging 18 holes with the majestic Adirondack Mountains as a backdrop. This month the course celebrates its 90th anniversary, proving that playing golf in the Adirondacks is an unbeatable experience.
Adirondack Shakespeare Company returns this summer, bringing professional theater performance to a stage near you with their second Summer Festival Season in July and August. The company will be touring the Adirondack Park, performing at least three days a week.

The season includes mainstage productions of A Midsummer Night's Dream, and The Merchant of Venice. Also on the schedule, The Complete Works of Shakespeare, Abridged and an original show for children, Theseus and the Minotaur.
Two students, one from Guilderland High School and one from Farnsworth Middle school, paddled Lake George in May to raise money for their schools' athletic programs.

Brothers Marcus and Brian Knodler paddled from Bolton Landing to Black Mountain, hiked to the summit, returned to their kayaks, and continued paddling to Ticonderoga on May 29th. 
The Adirondack Museum strives to tell the story of the Adirondacks with a focus on the people, both past and present, and their relationship with the wilderness. The museum is now recognizing the current residents of the Adirondacks with a special offer: locals who live in Adirondack Park year-round can visit the museum free of charge!
First in 1932, and then again in 1980 Lake Placid hosted the best of the world's athletes with the Winter Olympics.  Now, with the completion of the state of the art Conference Center at Lake Placid, the city can continue to host the best and brightest, this time in a variety of fields.

Two new exhibits have opened at the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake for the summer. "The Adirondack Work of A.F. Tait" and "Night Vision: The Wildlife Photography of Hobart V. Roberts" will both be on exhibit until October 17, 2011.
