Visiting Lake Placid
Lake Placid is best known for hosting the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Games. It's where, at the 1980 Winter Olympics, the U.S. Hockey team defeated the Soviet Union to advance to the gold medal game where they beat Finland to win the gold for the second time in Olympic history.
The 98th Annual Convention & Education Expo events will take place in unique venues such as the 1932 and 1980 Olympic ice skating rinks.
Lake Placid is easy to get to by car, train or plane. Major highways and roadways take you right into the village. On your way, enjoy breathtaking views of the Adirondack Mountains and lakes. The fall foliage should be at or near peak color. The scenic drive offers places to stop for photo ops and a bite to eat. Hotel accommodations are plentiful and range from charming inns to Adirondack themed-hotels as well as major hotel chains such as the Crowne Plaza and Hampton Inn & Suites. After a full day of educational sessions and expo activities, enjoy the numerous restaurants and attractions throughout the town.
