Queen of the American Lakes

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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Million Dollar Beach and Schroon Lake Town Beach. Visiting Prospect Mountain and Boat Tours & Water Sports will get you outdoors. Go for a jaunt from Lake George to Schroon Lake to see Paradox Brewery about 46 minutes away. There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George, do a tasting at Adirondack Winery, get engrossed in the history at Lake George Historical Association and Museum, and gain some tasty knowledge on Hoppy Trails Brew Bus.

To see where to stay, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Lake George trip itinerary planner.

Syracuse to Lake George is an approximately 3.5-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of train and bus; or take a bus. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from Syracuse in October since evenings lows in Lake George dip to 40°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sun) to allow time to drive to Lake Placid.
