Whether it is summer or winter, taking a trip to Lake Placid is always fun. But, If you really want to experience the best Lake Placid has to offer, you have to go on one particular weekend in December.

That weekend is December 10th through the 12th. The reason why is simple, that is when Lake Placid is doing their annual Holiday Stroll. Lake Placid is really a town that has immense beauty any time of the year, but nothing beats them during the holiday season.
