When you take a drive away from the towering buildings and busy streets of a city and explore the U.S., you’ll discover some of the most picturesque landscapes and natural attractions in communities all around the country. Many of us know the Adirondack Park is home to many picture-perfect places, but now U.S. News Travel has named two of them among the 50 most beautiful towns in America!
The Olympic Village of Lake Placid
Known as the “Olympic Village” of the Adirondacks after hosting two Winter Olympics, Lake Placid, NY was one of the towns chosen by U.S. News Travel.
Featuring the gorgeous Mirror Lake in the heart of the charming village, and even more impressive bodies of water nearby, visitors to the area are instantly surrounded by the natural beauty of the ADK. Best of all, the community’s close proximity to the famed High Peaks Region offers fantastic views of Whiteface Mountain and unforgettable landscapes.
Ticonderoga – The Town Between Two Waterways
Located between the northern end of Lake George and the southern section of Lake Champlain, Ticonderoga, NY offers amazing views of the two waterfronts. The small town is home to a variety of historic buildings and sites, including Fort Ticonderoga, and it is the second Adirondack community included in U.S. News Travel’s list.
For visitors, there are multiple ways to experience the region’s beauty. You can stop by the historic fort and see the King’s Garden, drive along Lake George or Lake Champlain, and take a walk on the LaChute River Walk Trail. This trail begins in Ticonderoga’s Bicentennial Park and travels by rushing rapids and breathtaking waterfalls.
