Lake Placid

A charming village in the Adirondack Mountains, famed for hosting the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics, known for its ski jumps and ice rinks.

Tips from the community

Same distance as Lake George, but way better. The less-touristy Lake Placid is a little mountain town in the heart of the Adirondacks. The ADK's are filled with 46 high peaks (mountains at or over 4,000ft), and you can definitely hit one in a day if you wake up early and get back to Burlington late. If you have time for a beer, Big Slide is cool and has some bomb vegan options on their menu (yo vegan supreme veggie pizza). Distance from Burlington: 2 hours.
