Lake Placid

Climb, hike, bike, walk, paddle or golf, whatever your favorite outdoor activity is – you can do it in Lake Placid. From campsites to luxury hotels, restaurants, shops, spas and even an Olympic sports complex, this resort town has it all. Surrounded by mountains, the town of Lake Placid sits on the calm waters of Mirror Lake. When the leaves start to change, the entire landscape is filled with red, yellow and orange leaves flecked with the deep green of the pines. In the distance, you can see the Olympic ski jump rise out of the trees. There are more than enough attractions and activities to fill an entire weekend.
