New York’s Olympic Region is one of the great playgrounds of North America, offering year-round fun and excitement. Nestled in the northeastern portion of the Adirondack wilderness of New York State, the rugged mountain scenery, heavy winter snows, and a pleasant summer climate combine to make the Lake Placid region a popular tourist year-round resort. The Olympic facilities used for the 1932 and 1980 Olympic Winter Games, Santa’s Workshop, Highfalls Gorge and other tourist attractions make this area fabulous for family vacations!
