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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Lake George: Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home (in Manchester), Bennington Battle Monument (in Bennington) and The Clark Art Institute (in Williamstown). There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George, look for all kinds of wild species at Prospect Mountain, take an in-depth tour of The Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration, and catch the contagious excitement of Saratoga Race Course.

For photos, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Lake George journey maker site .

In August in Lake George, expect temperatures between 80°F during the day and 57°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
