  • We waited in a long line on the ice that is Mirror Lake for a dog sled ride around the lake. It was great fun and worth the wait, but we were sorry we weren't wearing warmer clothes. So fun though!

  • In general, Lake Placid is one of the most beautiful places. This is our second visit here. The mirror lake is a magical place, especially in autumn and spring when the colors blend in with the atmosphere, come out and stand out in a special way. It's highly recommended to walk around the lake and visit the main road with the stores and restaurants.
  • This place looks good during the fall. We visited this place last fall. It was an awesome cool place. The mirrored lake is great. A great place to relax and to take pictures. It's a romantic place 🥰. I am in love with this place.
