Vacation in the Adirondacks

Mmm... Spring is in the air!

Can you feel that? Almost all traces of snow have disappeared, there's water flowing freely, the sun is shining, the breeze has the smell of adventure and renewal. While winter in the Adirondacks turns our quaint little village of Lake Placid into a veritable snowglobe, spring is a time to embrace the longer days and warmer temps. We are ready to welcome you with our outdoor activities and awesome adventures. Whether you prefer to hike, climb, ride, or simply shop and dine - travelers come to the Adirondacks from all over the world to experience the unforgettable alpine charm of our all-season resort town. An excellent destination for a family vacation or a romantic getaway, with a wide variety of events and activities, the hardest part of planning your Lake Placid vacation will be deciding whether to join us for a weekend or a week! Dream up your perfect day in Lake Placid and plan your trip today - we'll do what we can to help with all the little details...

After a day of outdoor adventure you'll want to relax in the perfect-for-you accommodations. What's your choice - an upscale green hotel, a cozy B&B, perhaps a camping cabin or a private rental house? We have lodging to suit all tastes, and speaking of tastes, our dining options are outstanding! Enjoy a local brew (we have several brewpubs in town) and start to plan your next perfect day in Lake Placid!
