Lake Placid Winter Olympic Museum
Revisit the "Miracle on Ice" or Sonja Henie's triumph, then discover the stories of many lesser known athletes of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics.
Whiteface Mountain
Whiteface may have made its name in winter, it has the highest vertical drop in the east, after all but it does summer pretty well too. The warmer months make Whiteface a natural setting for outdoor enthusiasts of all levels and ages, whether you're looking for an adrenaline rush or just an afternoon of beautiful views with your family. You can drive to the summit of Whiteface and take an elevator to the top, or ride a gondola to the peak of Little Whiteface.
