Skip the Cooking & Cleaning This Year! Here's Where to Eat Out in the Adirondacks for the Holidays

The holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year, and for many of us, the last thing we want to think about is preparing a big dinner for the family. If you'd prefer to relax instead of cook in the kitchen, then you should plan on going to one of these Adirondack restaurants that will be open on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, or New Year's Day.
