Lake Placid, a village in the Adirondack Mountains in New York state along with nearby Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake, comprise what is known as the Tri-Lakes region.
Lake Placid is best known as the two-time site of the Winter Olympics in 1932 and again in 1980.
In winter enjoy downhill skiing, at Whiteface Mountain, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and telemark as well as ice climbing and snowmobiling.
In summer the ski and snowshoe trails become beautiful scenic hiking and biking trails. Climb the 46 High Peaks, fish in the rivers or kayak and canoe in the lakes. While you are here, make sure you take the 2.5 mile walk around Mirror Lake.
Panoramic Adirondack High Peaks scenery, coupled with lush fairways and well-manicured greens, makes for that one of a kind golfing experience that is unique to Lake Placid.
From unique keepsakes to the latest brands, you will find plenty to buy in the quaint shops along Main Street. When it comes to dining you will find something to suit every palate from traditional American cuisine, barbecue to gourmet fine dining.
