We spent the night in Saranac Lake unexpectadley last week and happened upon a great little cafe that just started serving at night. We spoke to the owner and found that they had just gotten their beer and wine permit. It's newly remodeled inside and has a great eclectic menu. The food was excellent and the staff was efficient, but very casual.

Address: Main Street in Saranac Lake
The crime statistics for the Saranac Lake show the region to be "below average" for any crime risks. Like many touristy areas, it does have its share of thefts. There is only one sex offender registered for the entire region.
The only real danger here may come from lack of water safety by tourists. Make sure your kids are protected and your boat is well-equipped.
To make sure you have a safe and pleasant time in Saranac Lake, just follow a few simple rules. Lock your doors (car and motel room). Put valuables out of sight in a secure place (like the trunk of your car). Act like a native and not like a silly tourist (being inconspicuous makes you less likely to be a target for a criminal). Go to unfamiliar places in a group or at least during the day when other tourists are likely to be around.

Many of the Adirondack’s natural wonders are free. There are scores of waterfalls that you can view if you don’t mind hiking.
High Falls Gorge, like its cousin Ausable Chasm, charges you to see an impressive piece of the Ausable River. Here, a series of three waterfalls are easily accessed via paths, bridges, and walkways. The three falls— Main, Rainbow, and Climax— are all accessible on a half-mile round-trip walk. I list this as a tourist trap, because it has a lot of those trappings, but the falls are worth seeing.
The Summer 2003 fee is $8. The falls are also open in the winter; you can rent snowshoes for walking in a winter wonderland.
High Falls Gorge is 8 miles east of Lake Placid on Route 86, 1/4 mile west of Whiteface Mountain Ski Center.
There is a restaurant, a picnic area, and, of course, a gift shop. Doesn’t everyone need High Falls Gorge bumper sticker?

Fun Alternatives: If you have the stamina, hike to Rainbow Falls instead ( see the tip in Off the Beaten Path).
