The US hockey team's unforgettable charge over the Soviet Union during the 1980 Winter Olympics solidified Lake Placid's position on the international map of cold-weather destinations. But you don't have to skate through during winter to revel in a vacation to the Adirondack town.

Go for the gold with a two-night stay for two adults and two children in a standard room at the Comfort Inn on Lake Placid. Escape on Sundays through Wednesdays from now to June 22, 2012 ($235) or Thursdays through Saturdays from April 1 to May 31, 2012 ($295). A bottle of bubbly, daily breakfast, a free stay for Fido, and a late 2 p.m. checkout all add up to a medal-worthy getaway.

Gurus of the games can take a tour of the venues where history was made or trek through the treasure trove of memorabilia at the Lake Placid Olympic Museum. For those who like thrills and chills, Whiteface Lake Placid offers high-velocity bobsled and skeleton rides, tubing, and chances to shoot like a biathlete.

Lake Placid is delightful during warm weather, when paddleboats and canoes hit the water and backpackers hit the hiking trails—from the easy two miles of Peninsula to the grueling 33-mile trek of Jackrabbit. Those who are more inclined to bike than hike can take the gondola to the top of Whiteface Mountain and pedal the cross-country ski trails at the Olympic Sports Complex.

After a day of warm or wintry activities, relax at the hotel's tropical indoor pool and feast at the adjacent Howard Johnson's Restaurant, one of only three left in the world.

Feel like a true Olympic champion—no matter the season—on an Escape to Lake Placid.

  • "Summer brings hikers, bikers, and paddlers, while winter beckons skiers and snowboarders. The village of Lake Placid, home to two winter Olympics and the birthplace of winter sports in America, is ground zero for all the action."
