Lake Placid bills itself as the town of murals. They ain’t lying.
I’ve mentioned I live in a rural area near a lake? But the main drag is literally only minutes away. I visited yesterday, tried a local cafe, and walked around a bit.
Unfortunately, my back has not yet recovered from the stress of moving, so I wasn’t able to stay as long as I liked. But I will go back; the place is fascinating and beautiful.
I stopped first at Journal Plaza Square. I screwed up taking pics of the giant mural on the wall that borders a large green space, beside which is a line of businesses, but I’ll go back and get it soon. The really cool thing about it? They run free movies every week. Bring a chair, a blanket, and enjoy. They run it on a large white square in the center of the wall, on either side of which is a gorgeous mural. The cafe stays open, so you can buy food and drink if you didn’t bring your own.
That’s what I picked up in less than an hour. Can’t wait to return and discover more!
See you next time.
