Top 5 Reasons to Live in the Adirondacks

  1. Live in the largest unspoiled wilderness in the eastern United States. At 6 million acres, the Adirondack Park is a nature lover’s paradise and, according to the Adirondack Regional Tourism Council, is “larger in size than New England, and more expansive than Yosemite, Yellowstone, Glacier, Grand Canyon and the Great Smokies National Parks combined.”
