What: Family Vacation
Where: Lake Placid, New York
Why: To spend time together
Our family visited Lake Placid for the first time and we found it to be an ideal vacation spot for a family with multiple ages and interests. We stayed at the Crowne Plaza Hotel that sits on the hill in Lake Placid overlooking Mirror Lake and multiple mountains.
The hotel rooms were clean and welcoming, and the main public space at the front of the hotel was wonderful. The big room served as a gathering place where you could order drinks, appetizers or meals. The hotel also had a pool, library, restaurant, and a great outside patio.

Our family took to the mountains and climbed small, but beautiful Mount Jo. Later some of our hikers ventured further to see a waterfall and swim in a mountain pool. The vast forested lands, waterways, and multiple mountains were beautiful and offered countless opportunities for adventure.
