The L.L.Bean store in Freeport, Maine is awesome, if you are an outdoorsy type or just want to buy some well-made clothing! It's open 24 hours a day.
Can't you get from Vermont to Lake Placid by ferry?
You can take a ferry across Lake Champlain. Lake Placid is a bit inland though, maybe a 45 minute drive (I don't remember exactly, but there's definitely a bit of a drive). I love Lake Placid though, we do a long weekend there every year.
