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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Lake George: Lake Placid (Mirror Lake & Olympic Ski Jump Complex), The Clark Art Institute (in Williamstown) and National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum (in Cooperstown). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Prospect Mountain, sample the fine beverages at Lake George Distilling Company, and learn about winemaking at Adirondack Winery.

To find maps, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Lake George driving holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Plattsburgh International Airport, Bradley International Airport and Massena International Richards Field. In July, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 18°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
