You CAN get here from there!
Lake Placid is sheltered by the beautiful and vast protected wilderness of the Adirondacks, and the unspoiled nature of this region has attracted visitors for decades.
This pristine environment is sustained by limited development - also resulting in somewhat limited traditional commercial transportation, making Lake Placid a predominately drive-to destination. However, the scenic automobile byways make getting here half the fun! (And if you drive a hybrid vehicle to Lake Placid, we'll award you with a gold medal. Well, gold in color!)
However, if driving isn't your first choice, Lake Placid and Lake Clear airports receive smaller daily flights, there are 3 international airports located within less than a two-hour drive, Greyhound bus service winds throughout the Adirondacks, and Amtrak goes right through the region.
Below find a list of local travel services to get you to, from, and around during your perfect visit to the Adirondacks!
