I been involved with the Olympic movement for over 30 years and proud to call Lake Placid my home.
Lake Placid, NY home of the 1932 and 1980 Olympic Winter Games, is situated in the heart of the largest state park in the lower 48 states. The Adirondack Park is the crown jewel of New York State. With more then 6 million acres of land this park provides refuge and relaxation to millions of visitors. Lake Placid gets the lion's share of those visitors.
Lake Placid and surrounding areas provide unique opportunities for visitors to immerse themselves in the fascinating history of two Winter Olympic Games, visit Olympic facilities that include the site of the 1980 Miracle on Ice hockey game, Olympic Museum, ski jumps, Luge/Bobsled/Skeleton track, biathlon range and much more.
Of course American history plays a huge part in Lake Placid as an American anti-slavery hero John Brown's resting place is in Lake Placid. You can spend all day visiting Olympic and historic sites. But no worry. Lake Placid offers other fantastic opportunities like eating tasty foods at many great restaurants, shopping on Main Street, hiking and lots of outdoor activities.
The best thing about all of this that I'm the one who can show you Lake Placid the way that no other visitors see it. I have many other special places to visit that only you will see. After visiting Lake Placid with me you will come back time after time. I'm passionate about Lake Placid and I would love to be your guide into the fascinating world of Lake Placid.
