Lake George

— 5 nights

Queen of the American Lakes

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.
Get out of town with these interesting Lake George side-trips: Ticonderoga (Star Trek Original Series Set Tour & Fort Ticonderoga) and North Creek (North Creek Mosaic Project & Square Eddy Expeditions). There's lots more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George, take in the awesome beauty at Prospect Mountain, look for gifts at Lake George Olive Oil Co., and have some family-friendly fun at Pirates Cove Adventure Golf.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Lake George route planner.
