                          The Adirondack National Park is the largest protected wilderness area in the contiguous Unites States. ‘Forever wild’ certainly describes this most treasured piece of unspoiled beauty. Due to its unique make up of both publicly and privately owned land, there are over 100 small towns and villages tucked in among the 6 million acre preserve. The great Adirondack Park offers amazing opportunity for all sorts of world class outdoor activities - golfing, skiing, birding, hiking, cycling, fishing; the list is nearly endless. The village of Lake Placid is set right in the middle of this outdoor paradise, and combines a storied Olympic past, wonderful shopping, museums, history, dining and the arts with sports activities galore.
