What to Do
Visit Lake Placid and invent your own perfect day. Sheltered among the Adirondack Park's six million acres, our alpine village offers endless opportunity for outdoor recreation, unique attractions, shopping, dining and a variety of fun family activities.
We have 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 many outdoor activities. Bring your bike and ride through the region's dramatic landscape, offering 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.
Don't forget to enjoy a walk around Mirror Lake, have lunch at one of Lake Placid's many savory restaurants or simply relax in the comfort of an Adirondack chair. Attend one of the many inviting events, see a performance at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts or catch a movie at our historic old-fashioned 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 on-line with our trip planner tool and then hit the road—straight to the heart of the Adirondacks. Start inventing your perfect day!
