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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Shelving Rock Falls. Kick off your visit on the 21st (Sun): admire the sheer force of Shelving Rock Falls, explore the activities along Lake George, then get engrossed in the history at Lake George Historical Association and Museum, and finally hike along Buck mountain hiking trail. Here are some ideas for day two: glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, then examine the collection at House of Frankenstein Wax Museum, and then do a tasting at Adirondack Winery.
