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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lake George: Schroon Lake Town Beach (in Schroon Lake), Ticonderoga (Fort Ticonderoga & Star Trek Original Series Set Tour) and North Creek (North Creek Mosaic Project & Square Eddy Expeditions). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George, grab your bike and head to Warren County Bikeway, make a splash at The Great Escape & Hurricane Harbor, and Head underground at Natural Stone Bridge and Caves.
