With over 6 million acres in which to play, New York's Adirondack Park offers many ways to spend your free time. That is, unless you're hiker Adam Valastro, whose sole goal is to scale the park's 46 highest mountains in record time. Parking is scarce in the high peaks, so ditch the car and take a ride on the Warren County Bikeway. Leave your worries, and your phone, behind at rustic Timberlock, one of the oldest summer resorts in the ADKs. Swoon to world-class opera at Seagle Music Colony, or rock out at the Waterhole in Saranac Lake. Hungry? Share slices with new friends at Dogwood Bread's weekly pizza nights. And when night falls, take a moment to look up and gaze at the stars in one of the darkest places in the country.
