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.
Start off your visit on the 1st (Tue): look for all kinds of wild species at Prospect Mountain, then do a tasting at Adirondack Winery, then head outdoors with Painted Pony Rodeo, and finally take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports. On the 2nd (Wed), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: play a few rounds at Gooney Golf, then tee off at Lumberjack Pass Miniature Golf, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Warren County Bikeway.
