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 day by day itinerary now includes Around the World Miniature Golf. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Square Eddy Expeditions and Oscar's Smoke House. Get out of town with these interesting Lake George side-trips: National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum (in Cooperstown) and The Clark Art Institute (in Williamstown). There's still lots to do: try your luck at Saratoga Race Course, look for all kinds of wild species at Prospect Mountain, look for gifts at Wax 'n' Wix, and take in the dramatic scenery at Shelving Rock Falls.

For photos, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our Lake George travel planner.

In August, daytime highs in Lake George are 80°F, while nighttime lows are 57°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
