Schroon Lake’s Town Beach is the perfect location for your summertime outing. A true Adirondack lake, the sandy beach is surrounded by a picturesque mountain vista and is nestled at the base of a set of gently rolling hills.
Perfect for swimmers of all ages and abilities, the roped-in swim quarters are monitored by lifeguards, and the deeper section has a floating dock to lounge on.
Children can play by making sandcastles and burying their legs near the shallow water, while more experienced water lovers can take lazy laps in the clear mountain water.
Bring a picnic, or purchase your lunch at one of the quaint restaurants in town. If your timing is right, you may even coordinate with the local Farmers’ Market. Plan to spend the day. The beach is located just a block from town, which is an easy walk for those in your party that enjoy shopping for local goods and artwork.
While the kids wait out their 20 minute post-lunch break, before the call of the gently lapping waves sucks them back in, they can enjoy the town park. And, when it’s time to relax, there are plenty of benches and shady trees for those that are so inclined.
Or, spread a blanket out on the generous lawn and catch a quick nap as you listen to the sounds of summer play out all around you.
