In the mood to try something adventurous? Just a short drive from Rochester, NY you can spend a weekend getaway in the beautiful Adirondacks! One of the most popular destinations in the Adirondack region is Lake Placid. This fun little town is just minutes away from many high peaks to climb, home to the beautiful Mirror Lake, and full of plenty of shops and delicious food! Lake Placid was also the site of the 1980 Winter Olympics and remains an Olympic training center today. Here are a few things to keep in mind for your weekend trip:
The Golden Arrow
The Golden Arrow has everything from family style suites to romantic king rooms with a balcony overlooking the lake. This hotel is in the center of everything making it convenient to all lake placid village attractions. When you stay at this hotel you also get free access to their indoor pool as well as private beach on Mirror Lake along with paddle boards, kayaks, row boats, paddle boats, and canoes.
The Pines of Lake Placid
This hotel is by far the best value in town. If you are looking to pinch pennies on your lodging but still want good service, and a clean room to sleep in The Pines of Lake Placid is perfect! It also has a cozy atmosphere and is walking distance to everything in town!
Lake Placid Pub & Brewery
The brew pub is a must during a visit to Lake Placid. They have mouth-watering homemade eats and their very own brews of beer. Be sure to order a flight and try them all!
Representing the 46 high peaks in the Adirondack region, Simply Gourmet offers 46 (plus some extra) sandwiches and crepes each named after one of the mountains. This is a fun place to go for breakfast or lunch!
Climb a High Peak
Whether you are a seasoned hiker or looking to try something new there is a peak for everyone! A great beginner climb is Cascade. If you are looking for more of an intermediate challenge try Algonquin or if you are looking for a higher level of difficulty Mount Marcy (the tallest point in New York) will serve you well!
Visit the Olympic Jumping Complex
In the winter you will have the chance to see professional skiers training and in the summer you can take the tube ride of a life time!
