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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Lake George: New York State Museum (in Albany) and Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home (in Manchester). There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Prospect Mountain, do a tasting at Adirondack Winery, get engrossed in the history at The Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration, and cool off at The Great Escape & Hurricane Harbor.

For where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Lake George visit planning app.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major aiports are Plattsburgh International Airport, Bradley International Airport and Massena International Richards Field. In September, daily temperatures in Lake George can reach 27°C, while at night they dip to 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
