If you are planning a holiday in Lake Placid, at whatever time of year, the chances are that your best option would be to consider private holiday rental accommodation. The reason for this, above all, is that your intended activities are likely to be outdoor based and the need to keep your schedule as flexible as possible will be profound. Whether you are holidaying in Lake Placid for Winter sports or Summer sports, choosing to rent a town house, condo, cabin or cottage in the Lake Placid area will leave you free to concentrate on your sporting activities and thrills.
Winter sports in Lake Placid
It is undoubtedly as a former host of the Winter Olympics that Lake Placid is best known. If your Winter holiday is to be in Lake Placid, you will have options of some magnificent pursuits to enjoy. Skiing is available for everyone from beginner to expert and the express lifts will ensure that you get to the top of the best slopes in the shortest possible time. It is not just the slopes that afford skiing opportunities, however, with cross country skiing popular, as well as ice climbing and even snow shoe walking along designated trails.
Although perhaps less well known for Summer activities than Winter sports, Lake Placid is equally a holidaymakers' paradise in the warmer months. While fishing in the Lake Placid area may technically be an all year round sport, Summer affords fair weather visitors opportunities for catching trout, salmon, bass and more, on the fly or with artificial lures. The more than a dozen golf courses around Lake Placid are not only challenging but afford magnificent backdrops of the surrounding scenery as you enjoy each round, while the hiking trails offer equally breathtaking views. Boating on the numerous lakes can be a fun family activity, while cycling tracks to suit all abilities and preferences exist aplenty.
There is much more to Lake Placid than its sporting and outdoor activities. Booking private holiday accommodation will allow you to eat and enjoy yourself in the village restaurants, mingling with the locals and swapping stories and experiences. You may want to try the breakfast at the Dancing Bears Restaurant, lunch at the Lake Placid Pub and Brewery and then dine in style at the Lake Placid Club Golf House. These are just a few of the options you will discover if you spend a little time browsing the streets of the beautiful village of Lake Placid, a further activity which will help you enjoy your holiday in full.
