Lake Placid-What to do? Where to stay? Where to eat?

I have never been to Lake Placid and was wondering what is there to do in November (I will be traveling with an infant)? Also, what is a good place (hotel or b&b) to stay within walking distance to attractions? Any restaurants suggestions? Thank you in advance for any information.

This a very broad request so it is hard to make any recommendations without knowing what are your interests or budget for lodging and dining. There are endless places to stay and eat in. November is a very sad time to visit the Adirondacks. This is a transition period between a beautiful autumn and a white winter. It could be rainy or not. Its going to be dark and brown all around. Not the best time for the first visit to the region. Nonetheless, those who come in November or April with open minds are able to enjoy the Adirondacks.

Even though it's a little cool and could be wet, there is still great hiking and climbing here in Lake Placid this time of year. You can also visit many of the Olympic sites including the Olympic Museum and tour the Herb Brooks arena - where the Miracle on Ice happened. Many times there are world class athletes training at the various Olympic venues as well and you can watch. The town is beautiful and quaint and offers lots of great shopping and dining options. Just ask when you arrive and you'll be given lots of options. We have an historic movie theater that has been re-done and shows first run movies too. Enjoy, it's wonderful place!
