The Adirondack State Park is a truly magical place.
It's where the Miracle on Ice
happened in Lake Placid in 1980
. It's the home of well-known summer spots like Lake George
. And some of the historical sites, including Fort Ticonderoga
, are matched only by the beauty of destinations like Ausable Chasm
You can spend a $1,500 for a week at an original Great Camp
. Or you can spend $40 in gas and snacks for a full day of hiking and adventures.
Being the largest park and largest National Historical Landmark
in the contiguous U.S., the options are endless.
And it's for these reasons that an app has been created to help travelers with exploring the Adirondacks. The app is called Discover the Adirondack Park.
You can read a bit more in this press release:
The Adirondack Association of Towns and Villages (AATV),
Center for Economic Growth (CEG), Central Adirondack Partnership for the 21st
Century (CAP-21), and Adirondack Regional Tourism Council (ARTC) announce the
launch of a new travel planning app for visitors to the Adirondack Region of
Northern New York.
Discover the Adirondack Park is now available for free on iTunes and on Android, providing tailored travel information for first-time
and repeat visitors. While adventuring through the Adirondacks, travelers can
use the app even if data and Wi-Fi are unavailable to find recreation, lodging,
dining, and other information near their current location.
The app allows users who are planning their trip, and those
who are already in the Adirondacks, to find relevant travel information based
on their needs and geographic location via two filters: “I am Here” and “I am
Planning.” Both filters provide specific travel information personalized to the
user’s needs via categories such as:
Rock and ice climbing routes
Hiking trails and resources
