Escape to the Adirondacks for a Family-Friendly Train-cation

opens in a new tab

There’s a reason that Ironman Lake Placid is a perennial favorite for triathletes. For one weekend every July, the area becomes a magnet for multisport athletes and their families, who enjoy this town’s postcard-perfect setting in New York’s Adirondack region. But while Placid is the obvious draw to the ‘Dacks, there are plenty more places to train and explore throughout the six million acres of protected parkland—all just about 250 miles from New York City.

This summer, explore the full Adirondacks, whose boundaries roughly correspond to Adirondack Park extending in northeast New York to the Vermont border. The full region spans eight counties, covering a swath of mostly forested land punctuated by a cluster of mountains and nearly 3,000 lakes and ponds. In short, it’s a perfect place for a family (or friend) train-cation.
