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. Winter brings out the frozen beauty of the landscape: snow-capped peaks, valleys with awe-inspiring natural ice sculptures, and vistas that will leave you speechless.

Nature is never far from downtown. The region is home to hundreds of miles of trails that are perfect for a quiet snowshoe or walk in the woods or a relaxing cross-country ski. 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.
