The Best Places to Stay in Lake Placid: 7 Affordable Airbnb Cabins and Condos
Lake Placid was a popular destination before it was host to the 1980 Winter Olympics, but since then it has gained even more popularity. With winter and summer attractions bringing in crowds year-round, this quaint town in the Adirondack Mountains is a must-visit destination if you're in the area. In the heart of the town of Lake Placid, you can find quaint shops, delicious restaurants, relaxing coffee shops, and lively bars. Or take in a show at the historic Palace Theatre.
Centering on Mirror Lake, and surrounded by impressive peaks, the scenery is fantastic any time of the year. Visitors can hike, ride horses, or mountain bike in the warmer months. From the viewpoints on the hiking trails in the mountains around Lake Placid, visitors will be blown away by the views on a clear day. Another option is to go fly fishing on the Ausable River. Even if you don't catch anything, the views are worth your time. And don't miss a short cruise on namesake Lake Placid, as the views from the water are fantastic, too.
Of course, as a winter destination, Lake Placid has plenty to offer, too. Nearby ski resorts (such as Whiteface Mountain
) provide downhill entertainment. But it's also possible to find cross country ski areas, dog-sledding tours, snowmobiling, and more. Or visit the Olympic ski jump complex or the bobsled and luge tracks to see where history was made. Herb Brooks arena is the hockey stadium where the U.S. Men's Hockey team won the gold medal, too. The Olympic Museum provides a good overview of everything, so check it out.
