Recreational opportunities in the area
Skiing, hiking, mountain biking, and rafting are just a few of the many outdoor recreational opportunities that abound in the area.

Over the years, points of interest in the region have included:
* High Falls Gorge
* Saranac Lake
* Whiteface Mountain
* Lake Placid
* Au Sable Forks
* A number of ski areas
* Santa's Workshop

Designed by artist Arto Monaco, Santa's Workshop is one of the oldest theme parks in the United States. Monaco later designed and built his own nearby amusement park, Land of Makebelieve, in Upper Jay, New York. It opened in 1954, and remained a popular attraction until repeated ice floods forced the theme park to close in 1979. In addition to Santa's Workshop and the fondly-remembered Land of Makebelieve, Monaco also helped design Old McDonald's Farm, in nearby Lake Placid.

Julian Reiss established Santa's Workshop in the late 1940s, in the Adirondack Mountains of Upstate New York. The Christmas-themed family amusement park with its rides, petting zoo, shows and Christmas shops had been the centerpiece of North Pole, New York, before the tiny hamlet dwindled to just a few buildings. Reiss was known not only for the inventive Santa's Workshop, but also his Operation Toylift. The charitable effort has helped spread the Christmas spirit by delivering toys and gifts to underprivileged children in the area.

After the U.S. Postal Service awarded North Pole, New York "Rural Postal Station" status in the mid-1950s, and later its own ZIP code (12946), the tiny North Pole post office became a popular and apropos location to mail holiday greetings.
