Lake Placid named a real-life wonderland

(Continued)

LAKE PLACID —

The CNN feature does, however, suggest there are “43 peaks for hiking.” Not sure what happened to the other three or (technically) four, but Reilly said the story is a boost nonetheless.

“To have our Adirondack destinations included in these types of ‘top’ traditional media lists is always great exposure, and they lend themselves nicely to easy social-media sharing. In this case, the ‘wonderland’ reference underscored Lake Placid’s long heritage as a winter destination and nicely promoted this week’s Lake Placid Holiday Village Stroll event,” Reilly observed via email.

CNN’s “wonderland” pick points millions of viewers to the Village Stroll set for Friday through Sunday, with many events in stores and on the twinkling streets.

The Village Stroll has become a well-attended family event, filling the hotels, as Main Street and area businesses turn holiday glitter on and the music up. More than 30 retailers and 17 restaurants are participating.
