Lake Placid NY has it all: back-country adventure, Olympic thrills, upscale lodging and dining, family lodging and dining, European ambience, history, arts, and even dogsledding. The active outdoor adventurer can schuss the Olympic trails at Whiteface Mountain; cross-country ski and snowshoe at several venues (including the Olympic site at Mount Van Hovenberg); hit the links at several top-notch courses; ride a bobsled and a luge sled down the Olympic track; hike, rock-climb, and ice-climb a few short miles from the center of town; paddle the nearby waters; and fish the area's many streams, lakes, and ponds.
Less-athletic activities also abound. Simply walking along Main Street, imbibing the eclectic variety of restaurants and shops, is an experience to be treasured. The Olympic venues offer non-stop opportunities to watch world-class ski jumping, biathlon, cross-country racing, free-style skiing, hockey, and downhill skiing, as well as luge, bobsled, and skeleton racing. No matter what your tastes may be, Lake Placid is truly your year-round destination.
