Summer Activities...Hiking in the world-famous High Peaks of the Adirondacks, canoeing, fishing the Ausable River (for information on fly fishing and other outdoor activities, you may want to visit the Mountaineer's website, www.mountaineer.com) , whitewater rafting, bicycling, horseback riding, golf, tennis, swimming in the Ausable and Boquet Rivers, bird watching, rock climbing, and more are nearby. Now, the North American Ironman Triathlon is held in Lake Placid every summer! Athletes who compete in the U.S. Ironman Championship get the thrill of finishing the event on the Olympic Speedskating Oval where Eric Heiden won five gold medals in 1980. Other sporting teams and competitions continue to relocate to the region. The Lake Placid Horse Shows are held for two weeks in June and July. Lacrosse tournaments, marathons and other national and international events are held each year. An activity gaining in popularity is geocaching, using a GPS to find hidden treasures and see relatively undiscovered places.
For those who are interested in architecture or architectural history, this region abounds in lovely buildings in beautiful natural settings. Some, such as White Pine Camp (Calvin Coolidge's Summer White House) are available for tours. You might plan a visit to John Brown's Farm or the Great Camp Santanoni Preserve. Great Camp Sagamore makes a fascinating day trip, especially combined with (if you have the energy) the Adirondack Museum. Adirondack Architectural Heritage (AARCH) has an informative site you might enjoy. Some tours are by prior arrangement only.
