Attractions near the Best Western Adirondack Inn
Touring the Olympic Museum
Lake Placid has hosted two Winter Olympic Games, in 1932 and again in 1980, so there is a lot of sporting history in this area. Once you’ve visited the ice rink, slid down the bobsleigh runs and skied the cross-country trails, you might want to take some time to visit the Olympic Museum.
Tours are available and your guide may even be someone with links to the Olympics – many visitors find that their tour leader is a former local competitor or organiser. As well as treasures from the two Lake Placid games, the Museum houses exhibits from other Winter Olympic events.
Skiing the Jack Rabbit Trail
The area around Lake Placid is full of cross-country ski routes and one of the most popular is the Jack Rabbit Trail. Dating back to 1986, the Jack Rabbit Trail was designed to link up a series of old routes to form one continuous procession. These days it’s divided into a number of challenging sections, which can span as long as 11 kilometres.
Beginner and intermediate skiers may prefer to ski each leg separately, while experienced skiers can tackle the whole course in one go. You can start or end the trail at Lake Placid, just minutes from the hotel. As well as casual skiing, there are a number of regulated ski events held throughout the year that visitors are welcome to take part in.
