There’s no shortage of activities in the six million acres of the Adirondacks. Explore the hiking trails of Adirondacks High Peaks, visit local breweries and wineries at Lake George, and canoe in St. Regis. Lake Placid, the famous village and body of water, lies in the heart of the Adirondacks. Lake Placid was home to the Olympic Games in 1932 and 1980.
