Lake Placid has it all: back-country adventure, Olympic thrills, upscale and family-oriented lodging and dining, European ambience, history, arts, and an endless list of activities.

The outdoor adventurer can cruise down Olympic trails at nearby Whiteface Mountaincross-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, exploring 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.
