Where vacation begins

Lake Placid is where vacation begins – literally. The word vacation originated in Lake Placid in the 1800s when the nation’s social elite would “vacate” the stifling summer heat for the cool Adirondack air. Lake Placid is still a popular vacation destination for those looking for outdoor adventure; whether it’s hiking, kayaking, leaf peeping, or skiing, there’s something for everyone!
