Attractions for every type of adventure

For a small mountain town, Lake Placid has mountains of things to do (see what we did there?), from Legacy Sites like the Olympic Center and Olympic Jumping Complex, to sight-seeing at scenic gorges and much more. There's an abundance of space for relaxation here, but also opportunity for adrenaline-inducing mountain coaster rides or inline skating with a view of the mountains. With so much outdoor adventure, great views, mountains, and lakes, Lake Placid's activities are plentiful and plenty fun!
