Enjoy the outdoors any season of the year. In winter, you can cruise down Olympic trails at nearby Whiteface Mountain; cross-country ski and snowshoe at several venues (including the Olympic site at Mount Van Hovenberg); ride a bobsled down the Olympic track; or ice-climb a few short miles away from the village center. In warmer months, hit the links at several top-notch golf courses; hike; rock-climb; paddle the nearby waters; and fish the area's many streams, lakes, and ponds.
Looking for something to do that's less athletic? There's plenty to be found, as simply walking along Main Street, enjoying the many restaurants, breweries and eclectic shops, is an experience to be treasured. The Olympic venues offer non-stop opportunities to watch world-class competitions year-round. No matter what your tastes may be, Lake Placid is truly an Adirondack destination that should not be missed.
