Lake Placid, New York, is one of the few destinations to host the Olympic Winter Games twice (in 1932 and 1980). But make no mistake: Lake Placid is a winning summer destination as well.
The community actually boasts two lakes. Mirror Lake has the centrally located public sandy beach, while Lake Placid features a marina as well as water activities. Lake Placid is especially busy in the summer, when the weather is warmest. Toward the end of September and into October, Lake Placid, with its mountain location, is a terrific place to admire fall foliage.
The New York City Skyline
New York City, New York’s skyline is one of the most iconic in the world. Part of what makes the skyline so spectacular is the lofty number of skyscrapers that comprise it. Since 1890, 11 structures in New York have held the title of the world’s tallest building. Many tourists journey to the top of the Empire State Building for panoramic views, but a quick trip over the East River to Brooklyn Bridge Park offers a less chaotic and more scenic experience. Brooklyn Bridge Park also features several sports fields and plenty of places to enjoy a relaxing picnic.
Ride America’s Longest, Fastest Zipline
The SkyRider at Hunter Mountain in Hunter traverses about eight kilomters of Catskills forest at speeds of up to 88 kilometers per hour and heights up to 183 meters off the ground. The five ziplines run in pairs, encouraging participants to interact and race. The zipline course takes about three hours from start to finish. Families who haven’t tried ziplining before may prefer the mid-canopy tour, which includes six shorter ziplines, rope bridges and a thrilling rappel and runs at about 18 meters off the ground.
Saratoga: Take a Dip in the Springs
Besides a few small towns along the way, the drive to Saratoga is blissfully quiet. Once in Saratoga though, you’ll pick up the pace at least enough for a leisurely bike ride and a day at the park. Rent a bicycle through CDPHP Cycle, the city’s convenient bike share and pedal to Saratoga Spa State Park. The park’s attractions offer something for all ages: museums, golf courses, a public pool, performing arts venues, a Sunday farmers market and even lodging and dining. Back in town, visit Congress Park to stroll the tranquil trails, see the history museum inside the 1870s Canfield Casino and ride the old wooden carousel. If you have time, “take the waters” (a term used for healing ailments with mineral water) from all 21 spring fountains located throughout the city; each one has its own unique taste and is purported to have different healing properties. After you’ve sufficiently relaxed, go visit Mrs. London’s Boutique Bakery for its renowned pastries. But don’t let the name fool you, their specialty sandwiches, salads and quiche make this place a hometown go-to spot. Next: an abundance of outdoor adventures in the Adirondack Mountains.
Wild rivers, fine wines and meandering waterways!
