Lake Placid Travel Guide: 109 reviews and 324 photos

This February, I went to Quebec to surprise my Mom on her birthday, not having seen her since my move to England. Wanting to change and explore rather than always going to Quebec City, we decided to go to Lake Placid, NY!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Nice little winter resort. Calm. The Olympic stuff is impressive.
  • Cons:No good restaurants and not a lot to do if your not into outdoor stuff.
  • In a nutshell:Great place for a romantic weekend for outdoor lover or Winter Games enthousiasts!

    You made me laugh with this page! Great tips on your experiences at the Lake. Now I'm glad I at least went in Summer!
