We are heading to Lake Placid from Ottawa this weekend - arriving later afternoon on Friday, staying in the Lake Placid area, and leaving Sunday morning - probably swinging through Burlington, VT for a little shopping on the way home.
What would you recommend as activities for a family with a toddler? He is a very active 20 month old. We also have a hiking backpack we can throw him in if he gets too slow. ;)
I have looked at the Adirondack wildlife refuge centre - any thoughts on this?
We would like to get a hike in on either Sat AM or afternoon - good ones for under 2 hours? We are in good shape, but with a toddler (and I'm pregnant) so nothing totally extreme. ;)
Any "most do's" that would trump other activities?
Places to drive to on Friday afternoon with good views (or a shorter hike to stretch our legs?)
Really great shopping in the area/on the way to Burlington/in the Burlington area?
Any thoughts or advice is welcome! Thank you!
