Lake Placid | Weekend Getaway

I call it heaven on earth. I absolutely love this place and after a really rough week last week at work, I packed our bags and asked the hubby to go for a drive. And there we went - Lake Placid, NY.

I don't know what it is about this place, it's the only place we can both totally relax and forget everything that's going on at home. We would totally move there in a heart beat if we could get the right jobs. I'm not sure it's that easy as a Canadian though.

Arriving on Friday, we spent the night walking down main street, shopping and eating some delicious food. Our hotel room overlooked the water - we scored big time checking in after 6 with a discount on the view!

The next morning, we got up and took the back roads to a ferry that landed us just outside Burlington, VT. We spent the day at farmers' markets, watching buskers, shopping, eating great food and just enjoying life. We were going to continue on to Stowe, VT, but we decided to head home.

It was the perfect mini vacay, even though we didn't continue on. I think we're going to save the adventure to Stowe, New Hampshire and Maine for the fall. We've always wanted to see it with all the color and it will be a perfect time to have a final getaway before the new one arrives.
