Lonely Planet: Adirondacks are a top-10 destination

The Adirondacks were named one of the top 10 places to travel to in the United States in 2017 by the travel media company Lonely Planet.

Lonely Planet’s “Best in the U.S.” is a list of cities, regions and states worth traveling to in the year ahead, selected and ranked by Lonely Planet’s U.S. destination editors, writers and travel community. This is the seventh edition of the “Best in the U.S.” Lonely Planet released the list this week.

The Adirondacks ranked seventh, and the Wild Walk at Tupper Lake’s Wild Center natural history museum was touted as one of the premier attractions to visit in the region.

“Lonely Planet’s Best in the U.S. 2017 are the places we recommend travelers go next year,” Lonely Planet magazine Managing Editor Rebecca Warren said in a statement. “This year’s list is incredibly diverse, spanning from coast to coast, giving a panoramic tour of America. Whether travelers want to escape to the mountains, get transported back in time or relax by the beach, these are the destinations to be excited about. Some of them are on the public’s radar, while others are recently emerging, and they all offer compelling reasons to visit in 2017.”
