Nestled between two lakes in the heart of the Adirondacks, Lake Placid is the perfect place for families, telecommuters and second homeowners to come work and play. The village knows how to welcome newcomers: it was the site of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Games, and now hosts the annual Lake Placid Horse Show and Ironman triathlon. Myriad shopping and dining options line the village's main street. Lake Placid is home to several grocery stores and pharmacies, private schools, doctors' offices, and an urgent care facility, and is located a few miles from Whiteface Mountain in Wilmington, NY.
