Summer & Fall

The warm season in Lake Placid is exactly the picture-perfect experience that comes to mind when you think of a quintessential, all-American, lakeside summer. Join the local festivities, stroll through the shops downtown, or cool off from the sultry days with a dip in Lake Placid. Visit the Olympic Ski Jump Complex via a gondola ride with stellar views of the Adirondacks, then watch athletes train from the observation area.

Autumn in Lake Placid brings fall festivals and a kaleidoscope of color as the leaves prepare for winter. Visit the historic home of abolitionist John Brown, grab an ice cream from Emma’s Lake Placid Creamery, take a drive up to Whiteface Mountain to enjoy the breathtaking vistas from the Veterans Memorial Highway, then finish your day with a locally-sourced meal and live music at one of our acclaimed local restaurants.

Winter & Spring

In winter, nearby Mirror Lake offers a chance to discover your inner Olympian with tobogganing, pond hockey, or the ice track. If you’re wanting to stay indoors, visit the Herb Brooks Arena—an ice rink built for the 1980 Winter Games—or learn more about the area’s history at the Lake Placid Olympic Museum.

In the spring, take a meditative walk along the Brewster Peninsula Nature Trails on Lake Placid’s southwest shore, or experience the local culture with a show at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts. Catch a live music series and some late-season skiing at Whiteface Mountain, or hang around town to explore the local eateries.
