What to Do
Visit Lake Placid and invent your own perfect day. Sheltered among the Adirondack Park's six million acres, the alpine village offers endless opportunity for outdoor recreation, unique attractions, shopping, dining and a variety of fun family activities.
We have mountains to climb, rivers to fish, serene lakes to kayak and vast evergreen forests to explore—discover many outdoor activities. Bring your bike and cruise through the region's dramatic landscape, from quiet country roads to scenic mountain passes. Or pack your clubs and play a round on some of the beautiful Lake Placid golf courses—the region boasts 13 including five signature championship layouts.
Enjoy a leisurely walk around Mirror Lake, have lunch at one of the savory restaurants or simply read a good book in an Adirondack chair. Attend one of the many enriching events, see a performance at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts or catch a movie at the old-fashioned theater on Main Street.
