Inlet is located at the head of Fourth Lake, one of the Fulton Chain of Lakes. It features an active retail center with many locally-owned shops. In the middle of town is Arrowhead Park, formerly the site of a famous Adirondack Hotel. The Park has a sandy beach, tennis courts, a ballfield, and a playground. During the summer months, it is the site of a series of Saturday night sunset concerts.  In September of 2024, the town will recreate “One Square Mile of Hope,” a floatilla of canoes and kayaks that broke the Guinness World Record for the largest floating raft three times: in 2008, 2011, and 2014. The 2014 record stands at 3,150 boats on Fourth Lake. No one has been able to break Inlet’s record in ten years so the town will attempt to break their own record. In the three previous attempts, over $300,000 was raised for cancer research. There is always something big going on in “Inlet, the little town that could.”
