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 Lake George's surroundings by going to Saratoga Spa State Park (in Saratoga Springs), Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home (in Manchester) and New York State Museum (in Albany). There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George, take in the awesome beauty at Prospect Mountain, learn about winemaking at Adirondack Winery, and get engrossed in the history at The Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration.

To find more things to do, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Lake George trip planner .

In November, plan for daily highs up to 48°F, and evening lows to 28°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
