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.
Escape the urban bustle at Prospect Mountain and Lake George. Do some cultural sightseeing at Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home and Adirondack Winery. Take a break from Lake George with a short trip to New York State Museum in Albany, about 1h 10 min away. The adventure continues: try your luck at Saratoga Race Course and enjoy the sand and surf at Million Dollar Beach.

To find maps, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Lake George road trip planning website.

October in Lake George sees daily highs of 62°F and lows of 40°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
