From tours to interactive experiences, from soaring to sliding, sunrise pedaling to sunset dining, let’s make this summer shine with the gold of a Lake Placid adventure.

You didn't come to Lake Placid to sit in a hotel room and avoid the sunshine, fresh air, and endlessly fun woods and waters. No, you're here for the canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, birding, boating, golfing, and exploring! Gorgeous lakes and ponds fed by cool mountain streams offer sweet spots to play and paddle. Hike beginner-friendly or expert level trails through famous forests. Whether you're just going for a casual nature walk or a 16-mile kayak trip, get outside and enjoy all that summer has to offer! Looking for solitude? Try hiking on a Wednesday morning! While everyone is busy at work, you could be enjoying quiet time in the woods.

The adventure doesn't stop when you emerge from the wilderness! There are unique events, attractions, and experiences accessible right from Main Street. There's too much to do for just one day, so stay awhile and enjoy everything this mountain town has to offer!
