The Family Reunion Guide to Lake Placid

Ah, the family retreat. After years of talking about it, the three generations of relatives scattered from California to South Carolina are finally going to get together. But a hotel in, say, Chicago, may lack the intimacy of a rented house in Colorado – which doesn’t appeal to the altitude averse 90-year-old paterfamilias. The family reunion conundrum is solved in the village of Lake Placid, which knows how to host any personality after staging the 1932 and 1980 Olympic Games. The cream of the crop when it comes to family reunion locations, it’s the jumping off point for adventures small and large and an intimate gathering spot that lets conversations flow as easily as the local waterfalls.
