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.
Kick off your visit on the 9th (Fri): take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Prospect Mountain, fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and then learn about winemaking at Adirondack Winery. Keep things going the next day: get in on the family fun at Magic Forest, then examine the collection at House of Frankenstein Wax Museum, and then get engrossed in the history at The Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration.

To find more things to do, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Lake George trip planner .

Getting from New York City to Lake George by car takes about 4 hours. Other options: do a combination of bus and flight; or do a combination of train and bus. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from New York City in August since evenings lows in Lake George dip to 16°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 11th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive back home.
