What to do in Potsdam, NY

Food Scene
The 1844 House is our favorite restaurant in the area. Fine dining. The restaurant is built into an old home built in - you guessed it - 1844. You can also check out their early-bird special from 4:30pm - 5:30pm.

Above average Mexican food. Ask to sit on the rooftop or balcony if the weather is cooperative. You will enjoy the dining and a great view of downtown Potsdam and the Raquette River. There are 72 steps to get to the rooftop (we prefer the balcony, which is right over the river).

One-of-a-kind soft ice cream just outside of Saranac Lake. This ice cream stand is located on a farm. There is only one flavor per day. Best soft ice cream EVER! Bonus - you can see Whiteface Mountain from there. Open Memorial Day through Labor Day only.

Split decision on the best pizza in town. My wife and I pick Sergi's and the kids like Little Italy. (But Sergi's is the best). Currently pick up only, no seating in the restaurant.

Entertainment & Activities
Water theme park and children's rides. The park was originally called the Enchanted Forest and still has rides for toddlers to enjoy. An old train ride, and plenty of rides for small children to enjoy. The water rides are from toddler up to adults. Pick a hot day, because the park is in the middle of the Adirondack mountains, and it is always cooler there.
