Listen: I’ll be completely candid here and say that I am not the most familiar with upstate New York. My friends who live in the city consider Beacon, NY upstate, but I got the vibe that it was an NYC suburb considering that Metro-North ran through the town. But I digress.
When the folks at High Peaks resort invited me up to the Adirondacks for a fall trip this past October, I knew I had to jump at this awesome opportunity. The only thing I knew of Lake Placid before visiting was the town’s Olympic past (and present — athletes come in droves during the winter to train here!)
Overall, I’m not sure if I would go back to Lake Placid in the fall, but I think it’s worth a trip during Summer or Winter. Here are my honest thoughts about my Lake Placid experience.
