Brew fest 6th annual Lake Placid Brewfest tickets.  I remember my first brew fest. I went in blindly thinking I would just have some beers, and some fun with my friends. That's it. And that's great. It is a great day to be had no matter what your purpose is, BUT, if you want to get the most out of brew fests, take some advice from me. A pro. What makes me a pro, you ask? Twenty years of at least three festivals each year, ranging from large national festivals to small farmers' festivals. I've done them all. I've worked at them, I've attended them,... continue reading

In Lake Placid, the fun doesn’t stop when the sun sets. Yes, there’s a thriving music scene here, and if you know where to look you can get in on the action. The best part is, the music isn't confined to weekends. On any given night you can walk into a bar and hear a local band tearing it up, a traveling band fresh off of an overseas tour, or a world class symphony creating a beautiful soundscape. Here are some venues to get you started, but be sure to keep your ears open while you're in Lake Placid — you never know what you'll come across!

A.J. Arnold’s father began breeding sled dogs by chance about 40 years ago.  He was living in Saranac Lake when some neighbors returned from a trip to Alaska with a bunch of puppies. They decided to go back to Alaska, but the young dogs were not to join them —instead, they were left on peoples’ doorsteps, including A.J.’s father’s. Fortunately, that was a good place for the puppy to land. She was taken in, named Tasha, and she eventually gave birth to seven puppies of her own. Some of the lively animals pulling sleds across Mirror Lake today are part of Tasha’s line, most of them a robust... continue reading

Lake Placid really is the perfect family-friendly getaway! As we head into the holidays, I can't help but be overwhelmed a bit with the idea of entertaining Oliver, my very active 6-year-old, for two-weeks of vacation. While I know there are many parents out there that have awesome plans of action, I am fairly new to this break in routine. So, I did some investigating, I talked to some friends, I looked back on some of my family blogs, and then I came to the realization that the problem is not going to be finding activities to keep him entertained, it's going to be narrowing down... continue reading
 
When you think of Lake Placid, I’m sure many other words come to mind other than "Halloween." Olympics, hiking, destination vacation... sure, but Halloween? Well, after you finish reading this, it just might! After all, Lake Placid did receive the distinguished honor from Travel + Leisure in 2013 as one of the best towns in America to celebrate Halloween! Their reasons include the cutest Elementary School parade down Main Street, a rendition of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts and, to top it all off, a bar crawl with some pretty amazing prizes for Best... continue reading
 
Hi there! My name is Nibbler. I'm psyched because today, I get to invent my own purrrrrrfect day in Lake Placid, one of my favorite places on earth!  1. The lake  I'm starting my day with a morning paddle, and there's plenty of places to do it in and around Lake Placid! There's nothing like getting on the lake to forget your troubles and find your zen. And while I'm at it, I'm going to catch a fish or two to munch on. 2. MTB Next I'll head to the trails to shred some singletrack. I'm just going to take a little break under here while this dude catches some air.  3. Vino What a fun... continue reading
 
The best way to face your fears is to confront them, and that’s what my friend Jess did during our visit to Experience ADK Outdoors, a new zip line course at Cascade Ski Center. The ropes Bill “Big Wheels” Walton and Emory “Swamp Donkey” Clark, were our guides during the adventure. Before heading into the treetops, they helped us get our harnesses on and explained the braking system to us. It’s basically just a pair of work gloves, one of which fits into a leather sleeve to serve as your brake hand. To control your speed, simply press the palm of your brake hand down onto the line and you’... continue reading
