Celebrities in the Adirondacks
Vacationing or better yet moving to the Adirondacks is a great way to escape your busy, fast-paced life in a big city or bustling town. It is always possible to find a quiet, remote place and burrow away somewhere in the six-million-plus acres of the Adirondack Park. Even celebrities from all over the world travel here to get away from the flashing lights and snapping cameras.
