It seems like every year, Lake Placid receives recognition for its stunning beauty and abundant activities, and this year is no different. The quaint Adirondack village was recently named to CondÃ© Nast Traveler’s list of The Most Beautiful Towns in America!

Lake Placid was one of 17 towns to be recognized, and the feature emphasized its “combination of rolling mountains and the clear, spring-fed, 2,173-acre lake” as being particularly appealing. Also noted were three of Lake Placid’s hotels – Whiteface Lodge, Lake Placid Lodge, and Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa – which made CondÃ© Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice Awards list of the top resorts in the region.
Among the 16 other places listed were some of New England’s most charming destinations (Woodstock, VT; Nantucket, MA; Newport, RI), territories out west (Santa Barbara, CA; Taos, NM; Sedona, AZ), and towns tucked among the mountains (Sitka, AK; Breckenridge, CO; Bozeman, MT).
If you’ve ever been to Lake Placid, we’re sure you agree that CondÃ© Nast Traveler was spot on in including the Adirondack village on its list of The Most Beautiful Towns in America!
