Shopping

It has a little of everything to avoid a trip to the Grocery. Plus the deli counter is a go-to on a cook free evening or good to bring on a hiking day out.

Great atmosphere, awesome people, great beer! The blackberry stout was delicious and the IPA was one of the best we've had. Was a great stop after the bobsled experience which was about a mile up the road.

Home of the bobsled run and ski jumping. See the ORDA / Whiteface website for more offerings year round. The arena location off of main street- Not only the history of the ice rinks but the hallways are lined with lots of information on some of the most memorable moments in USA Olympic history....Miracle on Ice. The Arena is open to the public and has a museum inside that is admission through a ticket but general walk through to see the rinks and catch possibly a hockey game or figure skating lesson is all open unless there is a special event taking place.

It's quaint and historic. Prices for food are crazy inexpensive too, as well as the movies. Cash only though but an affordable night out!

A local favorite in the summer, can be dangerous is water in river is high but when it’s low it has beautiful trails to walk and waterfalls to explore and if you dare a few rock ledges to jump off in the the big hole below some of the falls.

Free to public, they accept donations to keep their enclosures updated. This park hosts animals all native to the ADK park with the ultimate goal of nursing them back to good health and reintroduction back to the wild. A must see for an afternoon stop, you don't know who will be howling....

Sightseeing

This is a trip up the backside of Whiteface Mountain to the summit observatory, once at the summit the sights are incredible. The drive up will make even the most skilled driver a tap queasy at the winding steep incline, very fun and what a good photo op at the top!
