Hiking one of the Adirondack High Peaks, mountain biking, or visiting the Olympic venues for a ride in a bobsled... when visiting Lake Placid there are so many activities to enjoy, the only question is where to begin. Whether you have a few free hours or a few free days on your trip, discover the great time you and your family will have participating in our vast variety of Adirondack activities.

Educational, awesome, and just plain fun

  • High Falls Gorge is just beckoning you to visit one of the Adirondack's most beautiful natural attractions. Walk the bridges, take a trek through the trails, marvel at the falls all around you, and don't forget a hot cocoa, or a cool drink to finish the day!
  • The littlest members of your party will put you on the 'nice list' when you surprise them with winter - no matter the actual temperature! Visit Santa's Workshop for a great outing and a reminder that "he knows when you've been good or bad."
  • When it's time to spend a little time inside and you need to expend a little extra energy, Bowlwinkles is the place to be. Check out their two new bounce houses, plus Cosmic Bowling & Laser Tag - perfect for the whole family! 
  • Explore the wild nature of the Adirondacks at The Wild Center. A must-see, “Glorious” says The Wall Street Journal and “Stunning” says New York Times!
