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 29th (Sat): take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Prospect Mountain and then make a splash at The Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom. On the 30th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: explore the activities along Lake George, then do a tasting at Adirondack Winery, then take an in-depth tour of The Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration, and finally try your luck at Saratoga Race Course.

For maps, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Lake George trip planner .

In September, daily temperatures in Lake George can reach 74°F, while at night they dip to 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
