Close your eyes and imagine beautiful, serene nature — rolling hills, high peaks, and clear, fresh air. In the midst of all that beauty, sits Lake Placid, New York, a classic mountain town.

Completely Placid

Lake Placid is an opportunity to enjoy fresh, mountain air, and majestic views. The landscape comes alive in spring and summer: endless peaks of green, valleys with refreshing lakes, and vistas that will leave you speechless.

Nature is never far from downtown. There are opportunities for a quiet paddle, hundreds of miles of hiking trails, and countless road cycling loops. Fuel up for any adventure at any number of locally-loved and locally-owned restaurants and shops; they're all perfectly splendid.

Olympic-sized scenery

From smaller summits to the Olympic venues, Lake Placid is legendary for big views, big scenery, and big history, but with a charming, small town twist, which is why we call it home.
