Summer Time, when the livin’ is easy. And that’s especially so,  right here in Schroon, where once again, there is oodles to do. Got an event we don't know about? Tell us in comments!

There's a great way for kids to learn about the history of the Adirondacks in this weekly summer tradition of Tall Tales at The Paradox House Gallery Retreat. Are the stories fact or fiction? You decide. Kids ages 4 to 10 hear stories about the characters who made the ADKs what they are today. 167 State Route 74, Severance. 518-351-5003

Wanna learn more about Schroon’s rich history? The first of two Narrated Boat Tours (the other runs Thursday)  takes off from the Word Of Life dock at 11am. If you don't have access to a boat while you are here, this is a terrific way to explore the northern reaches of our lake and at the same time learn about our town's rich past. The tours are narrated by local Laura Donaldson, who knows more than she can fit into this 30 - 45 minute tour. Advance tickets are a must and are available at the Chamber of Commerce office on Main Street. 518-532-7675.
