Known as the Gateway to the Adirondacks, Fulton County’s 44 lakes earn it praise from the likes of Outdoor Magazine. Both Johnstown and Gloversville are rich in Colonial history and were home to a thriving leather industry in the 1900s. Artists here use natural materials to craft Adirondack-style furniture and other works. The historic Glove Theater hosts performing arts, and several galleries show the work of local painters, potters and artisans. Still, the real attraction is the opportunity to enjoy the natural, rustic beauty of the region, and the taste the products from local farms.
