Lake George

A playground for America’s wealthy families, Lake George was nicknamed "Queen of the American Lakes." While these families often stayed in private country houses, a tourism industry built up around them in the early 20th century facilitated by two YMCAs.
Bring the kids along to Adirondack Extreme Adventure Course and Howe Caverns. There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Prospect Mountain, get in on the family fun at Magic Forest, browse the exhibits of Fort William Henry Museum and Restoration, and let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour.

To find traveler tips, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Lake George vacation builder.

New York City to Lake George is an approximately 4-hour car. You can also take a bus; or do a combination of flight and bus. Traveling from New York City in August, Lake George is a bit cooler at night with lows of 57°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sat) so you can go by car back home.
