Hello, we are a 27 year old couple looking to getaway from New York city for the weekend. I am looking at both Lake Placid (5 hr drive) and Lake George (3.5 hr drive). From what I've read online, LG appears to be like Niagara Falls; cheesy, touristy and full of kids. I would prefer a quieter, more serene place with better sights - would that be Lake Placid? Is it worth the extra 1.5 - 2 hour drive?
Which has better restaurants? Which has more to do in terms of activities such as boating/fishing?
Also does anyone have any experience staying at the Stagecoach Inn or the Placid Bay Inn in Lake Placid. Would these B&B's be better than staying at say "Art Devlin's Olympic Motor Inn? Alternatively, a place called Wildwood Inn looks beautiful but seems to be a family oriented place.
Any suggestions would help.
