Lake Placid is nestled in the Adirondack Mountains. It has a rich winter sports history, but it’s also really fun to visit in the summer. The Olympic Center — site of the Miracle on Ice in 1980 — is open for figure skaters and hockey players to use.Many nearby waterways are perfect for paddling — whether that be by canoe, kayak or stand-up paddleboard. Hiking is the most popular activity when it gets warm, with trails for every skill level. Take a paddleboat around Mirror Lake, watch a concert at Mid’s Park and forget about the rest of the world for a while in one of many spectacular spas.
