With premium lodging at great rates, indoor and outdoor recreation to keep you busy (who says ski season is over?) and award-winning spas to recover and rejuvenate from the gray days of winter, Lake Placid is the perfect spring retreat you never thought of – until now.

For Families and Adventurers

Beat cabin fever and finally get some fresh air! Take the whole family spring skiing at Whiteface Mountain. Soft snow is great for learning, and experienced skiers love to make the most of “corn” season, when all the melting and refreezing makes the snow look like kernels of unpopped popcorn.

For those looking to discover more of nature’s beauty in the region, Lake Placid offers hikes for all experience levels, many of which lead to stunning waterfalls.

And if the weather is still a little too chilly, you can feed your sense of adventure indoor rock climbing at Mt. Van Hoevenburg Olympic sports complex.

For Rest and Relaxation

With so many opportunities for adventure, you may not realize that Lake Placid is also known as a relaxation destination. Treat yourself to any number of wellness services at one of the area’s full-service spas and return home feeling refreshed.

To keep your trip low-key and breezy, take in simple pleasures like enjoying a meal with a great view, shopping on Main Street and exploring the art scene.

You can purchase an original piece of local artwork at The Curious Otter wildlife gallery or Gallery 49, part of the Lake Placid Center for the Arts, which also presents regular classes, exhibits, galleries and musical and theatrical performances.

2 Thoughts on “Visit Lake Placid This Spring

    1. Isn’t 81 the new 61? Somebody told me that, I don’t know if it is true or not. If I am 60, that means I am really only 40! Don’t act your age. You don’t have to ski, but you can go up on the lifts and enjoy a birds eye view of the area. It is a lot of fun and then you can either hike down or take the lift down, eat good food and just enjoy the beauty.
