Overview

Even the best summer day has to end, but the good times don’t, for the town of Lake Placid is loaded with dining and entertainment options you won’t find at most eastern resorts. High-quality lodging options in the area range in price from easy on the wallet to exclusive. You can stay downtown and along the lake or away from it all. Cuisine includes everything from pizza to gastropub, to high-end everything. Shopping options include nationally recognized outlets and boutiques.

If you’re coming for more than a day—and you should—you’ll have more options than you can find anywhere else. Summer visitors may want to skate a few laps around the historic 1980 Herb Brooks Arena or take a dip in Mirror lake at the Lake Placid Beach. The more adventurous will love taking the plunge down the Sky Flyer Zipline, or explore your inner monkey at Experience Outdoors. For an idyllic alternative, you’ll enjoy our picturesque Olympic Nordic venue, Mt. Van Hoevenberg witch offers hiking and cross country mountain biking. You’ll discover unparalleled serenity and peace-of-mind. Now that you’re here, make the Whiteface Olympic region your playground.
