Think, for a moment, of the Adirondack Mountains. Do you picture stunning mountain vistas and gorgeous lakes? Maybe you see everything you can do; all of the sights and experiences that make Lake Placid the perfect place to dis-lodge and re-sort. While the Adirondacks might be known for outdoor adventures, indoor exploration presents a bountiful opportunity for mercantile adventures.
