Guest Author - Brenda Potter Reynolds

There's a festive atmosphere to Old Forge, NY in the summer. Downtown is busy with people sunning themselves on the beach, browsing through the small shops, or just strolling down Main Street. Located in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains, there's plenty to do in this resort town, including shopping, and there's plenty to shop for.

A number of small shops and specialty stores line Old Forge's Main Street. Just a few of the items to be found here include custom-made T-shirts, glass works, and furniture. Arts and crafts are adequately represented as well.

Its location at the base of the chain of Fulton Lakes assures visitors access to watersports. A public beach is located within the town, complete with diving dock and sandy shore. Boat rentals are available at Rivett's Marine, online at Rivett's Marine.
