Lake Placid, a village in the Adirondack Mountains in New York state along with nearby Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake, comprise what is known as the Tri-Lakes region.
It is best known as the two-time site of the Winter Olympics in 1932 and again in 1980 where you can enjoy downhill skiing, at Whiteface Mountain, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and telemark as well as ice climbing and snowmobiling in the winter months. In summer the ski and snowshoe trails become beautiful scenic hiking and biking trails. Climb the 46 High Peaks, fish in the rivers or kayak and canoe in the lakes. While you are here, make sure you take the 2.5 mile walk around Mirror Lake or enjoy a round of golf on the lush fairways and well-manicured greens that are unique to Lake Placid.
