But there are also many other opportunities to enjoy Lake Placid at its fullest.
Around Lake Placid, start by visiting the Olympic museum, which interprets the stories of two Olympic Winter Games. Then, walk to the Lake Placid – North Elba Historical Society, which documents the history of the Village of Lake Placid and the Town of North Elba. And end your tour with a visit to John Brown Farm, the home of abolitionist John Brown.
Moving a bit further, there are two other museums, really worth a visit: the Adirondack Museum, located close to Blue Mountain Lake, which features displays in more than twenty galleries and historic buildings. And, on your way there, dedicate some time to the Wild Center, located in Tupper Lake, which houses live exhibits, trails, its own river and pond, multimedia shows and hands-on experiences.
The Adirondack culinary experience is inspired by the diversity of the natural elements that characterize this magnificent region. From traditional American cuisine in a family-friendly atmosphere to a gourmet dinner within one of the elegant hotels, you’re sure to find something to satisfy your craving in one of the many Lake Placid restaurants.
