Saratoga Springs to Lake Placid, or...?

Jump to last reply

I have an extra day or 2 around a trip to Saratoga Springs this weekend. I know the immediate area pretty well, but I was wondering if it makes sense to take a day trip to Lake Placid. a place I've wanted to visit but can't seem to squeeze in!. I'd rather stay overnight, but last minute foliage and holiday weekend rates are too high for me.

Does it make any sense for me to drive 2 hours each way to Lake Placid? What could I see there in such a short time, and is there a more scenic route that I could take one way?

If the trip seems silly, where else would you recommend I spend my extra day? I've been to the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake (loved it) and The Hyde Collection , nice but there's nothing I want to see there right now. I see that Gore Mountain has a harvest festival but I think its probably more for kids and very crowded.

Any suggestions for Lake Placid Itinerary or alternate ideas welcome.
