Lake Placid Olympic Center Lake Placid, NY
#5 of 14 Fun & Games in Adirondacks
Sean was a sensational tour guide, with exhaustive knowledge regarding Lake Placid history and the 1980 games, and an unending passion for sharing it with others.
Take the one hour tour in The Olympic Center and you will see the Herb Brooks ice arena where The USA beat The USSR in 1980 , but if you're very lucky you will have Howard Riley as your tour guide.
