Why the Adirondacks?

The Adirondacks, are truly a hidden gem in Upstate New York, boasting around six million acres of public and privately owned land with thousands of opportunities for adventure. I grew up 100 miles south of the ADK and barely knew anything about it until I moved here! Crazy, right? Well I'm here to tell you that the Adirondacks has something to offer for everyone. Mountain peaks, meandering rivers, cascading waterfalls with thousands of recreational opportunity. It's truly the perfect elopement destination. Choosing the right location might be one of the most memorable parts of your elopement day, so here are a few places you might want to consider!

On a Mountain

Whiteface Mountain overlooks Lake Placid and is really high up on my list for ceremony locations in the Adirondacks. One of the main reasons is that it's a short hike up to the top up a flight of stairs, but there is also an elevator that can take you up and down making it accessible for anyone! This is a great option if you want amazing views without a hike, or somewhere that family members will be able to join you.

In the Forest

If you want to be surrounded by the magical pine and spruce trees in the ADK, a forest elopement might be for you. There are SO many options for locations like the in the ADK, but Roaring Brook Falls has forest all around and if you want to say "I do" in front of a waterfall you can even take the 0.8 mile trail all the way to the end to enjoy the falls.

An Open Field

Looking at the mountains from ground level can be just as breathtaking as looking down from the top of a mountain! Plus, a landscape like that makes for stunning photos. Marcy Field located in Keene Valley is a great option if you're looking an accessible field without a hike but still surrounded by mountains. Rent this camper van with Vantastic Adventures for somewhere unique to get ready!
