If you live in or around New York city or are looking for a fun weekend getaway, I can’t suggest Lake Placid enough! It is perfect year around, but winter is definitely one of my favorites. This past weekend 13 of us (all friends from college) rented a house from AirBNB right on Mirror Lake for the long weekend. Temps were in the negatives and we truly were just looking forward to hunkering down, cooking a “family” dinner, drinking some wine and having endless fires burning. It was the perfect relaxing weekend away out out of the city.
