Lake Placid, New York
Lake Placid, which is set in the Adirondacks, has a rich winter sports history but it also offers many summer activities. The Olympic Center is open, offering bobsled and luge rides with a professional. Many nearby waterways are perfect for paddling – whether that be by canoe, kayak or stand-up paddleboard. If you’re looking for a spectacular place to stay, consider the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa – a beautiful lakeside lodge. Tip: For the experience of a lifetime, make sure that you go whitewater rafting with Adirondac Rafting Co.
Acadia National Park, Maine
Acadia has long been known for its stunningly rugged natural coastline, and the best way to take it all in is from the water during the summer months. This national park is one of the best spots to paddle the U.S. coastline. Visitors can also go hiking, camping, and storm watching on the Schoodic Peninsula, and view the gorgeous sunrise over Cadillac Mountain.
