Every October, Mother Nature uses upper New York as its canvas upon which to paint spectacular, enchanting colors, each more dazzling than the next.
If you are within driving distance of this grand autumnal display, you would be doing yourself a serious disservice to ignore it. Lucky for you, the Adirondacks keeps the month of October chockfull of festive activities to keep you entertained as you drive the twisting and turning roads of its colorful kaleidoscopic splendor.
From the “Sprits of History Ghost Tours” at Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration on Lake George every Friday and Saturday in October to the Oktoberfest Fall Festival in Shepard Park, Lake George—which features an Oompah band, German delicacies, “Bier Garden,” fine arts and craft show and children’s activities, this region of the Adirondacks is the perfect destination for a weekend drive.

Bill Burke—Long Islander, retiree and car aficionado—recommends a Jeep Grand Cherokee be your magical chariot through this fantastical sea change of green to bright red, rustic orange and yellow hues through the mountains.
“What more could you ask for?” he inquires.
What more? Perhaps a stop at the Adirondack General Store, a throwback to simpler times selling everything from newspapers to fishing gear, jewelry, clothing, toys, novelty items, books, maps, old fashioned candy, ice cream, and fabulous homemade jams, pies, breads and cakes.
If you’re looking to drive your Jeep Grand Cherokee off the beaten path for some gourmet, high-end, give-you-enough-energy-to-rake-a-gajillion-leaves coffee, make sure you don’t miss Crossroads Outdoors in Chestertown. Treat yourself to the daily special sandwich and you won’t ever be let down. Top it off with a visit to the ice cream shop and indulge your sweet tooth. While you’re there, venture down to the basement and load up on fishing gear and fresh bait. Or mosey upstairs and browse the gift shop. There’s something for everyone.
For an upscale dining experience that will rival those in Manhattan, check out The Bullhouse in Chestertown. This steakhouse boasts a wide selection of craft beers and an impressive wine list. For an appetizer, order the panko-encrusted calamari strips, drizzled with a peppery churrasco sauce. For your main course, we recommend the succulent pork shanks and outrageously massive rib eye—both cooked to perfection.
