What to Do

Invent your perfect travel to do list

Start planning your spring and summer vacation

With so much to see and do year round, it's never too early to begin planning your vacation. If you're looking for family activities we have plenty to choose from. Here in the Adirondacks, we have endless mountains to climb including the 46 High Peaks, rivers to fish, fresh water lakes to kayak and canoe; along with vast evergreen forests to explore—discover our many outdoor activities. Bring your bike and ride through the region's dramatic landscape, choose terrain ranging from quiet country roads to scenic mountain passes. Or pack your golf clubs and play a round on the many beautiful Lake Placid golf courses—the region boasts 13 including five signature championship layouts.

While in Lake Placid a must do is a 2.5 mile leisurely walk around Mirror Lake complete with a stop for lunch at one of Lake Placid's many savory restaurants. Enjoy the fresh mountain air while taking in the beautiful views. In the evening attend one of the many inviting events, see a performance at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts, or catch a movie at the historic Palace Theater on Main Street.

However you spend your time here, be sure to take advantage of lodging packages and special deals from our many accommodating Lake Placid Hotels. Build your itinerary online with our trip planner tool and then hit the road—straight to the heart of the Adirondacks. Start inventing your perfect day!
