New Northway Rest Area Opens

After being under construction for some time, the former rest area at Northway exit 18 in Queensbury has been transformed into 'The Adirondacks Welcome Center'. Much different than a typical rest area, this features New York State history, popular destinations in the Adirondacks, vending machines that feature New York State foods, and a large playground area complete with a mini zip line. 

There's even a 'Walk of Fame' for celebrities with ties to the Adirondacks - Kevin Bacon is featured since his family often camps in Old Forge. 

The new building will act as a symbolic gateway to the Adirondacks region of New York State. And yes, there are public restrooms.
