Lake Placid - the Pearl of the Adirondacks

Located in the north east part of the USA, close to the Canadian border and on a driving distance from NYC, Lake Placid is the undiscovered pearl of the Adirondack mountains. The fall paints the mountains with the most beautiful colours. It is the ideal time for hiking and observing nature. When the leaves start changing colors the coast of the Mirror lake becomes orange and gold. It is impossible to ignore the beauty of the mornings here at the village. Right before the morning spring and the fog go away the smoke of the morning coffee will make you realize that life can in fact be beautiful. Here you can touch the sky. You can literally touch the sky. The clouds come down to the lake and create instagrammable pictures. The hiking trails are well marked. There are many peaks. Some of them are easy, some of them are for more experienced hikers. Lake PLacid is also the home of Iron Man, the triathlon which attracts sportists from all around the country. The Main street is a home to many hotels and restaurants where the guests can enjoy coffee or lunch with a view. The view is for free. You only pay for lunch.

Exploring the Main street

Main street is the most important and the most beautiful street in Lake Placid. This is the place where you can find hot cocoa in winter and cold beer in summer. A lot of hotels are located from the beginning to the end of the street creating a warm and cosy atmosphere. There are handmade shops and cute souvenir shops for buying memorable gifts for your family and friends.

Main street is beautiful at any time of the year. During winter it is the place with the most beautiful Christmas market. During summer it is the place for concerts and beers. In autumn it is turned into a Halloween fairytale for all children and adults who enjoy pumpkin lattes and hot chocolate.

A winter fairytale

Crowne plaza

Located in the hills right at the end of Main street, Crowne plaza is a three star hotel with affordable prices. Extremely clean rooms with fireplaces and view to the lake are a good deal for every guest. Golf terrains, pools, gyms and mountain cottages are only a small part of the Crowne plaza offer.

Come to buy yourself a miracle

USA Hockey Store

This is the store which symbolises the miracle which happened at the winter olympic games in 1980 when the USA hockey team of college players defeated the Soviet’s team in the last minute. The Soviets were hockey champions years before that is why this was a huge event. Up until now the USA celebrates this day.
