Located in Adirondack State Park in New York, Lake Placid is a crown jewel of winter sports. The community gained worldwide attention and popularity by hosting the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Games. Its winter sporting facilities are world-class and numerous, including 2 ski jumps, 2 ice arenas, bobsled runs, and a multitude of others.

Lake Placid is a small tourist town, overflowing with abundant lodging, shops, and restaurants. Many visitors use Lake Placid as the launching point for a myriad of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, boating, skiing, fishing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and camping.

Come join me, I'm about to start my tour of the village of Lake Placid.
