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.
Head to The Hyde Collection Art Museum and Historic Home and Southern Vermont Arts Centerfor plenty of shopping. Your inner history buff will appreciate President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site and The Old First Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Lake George: Calvin Coolidge Homestead (in Plymouth), National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum (in Cooperstown) and North Meadow Farm (in Manchester). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at The Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration, explore the activities along Lake George, examine the collection at The Sembrich, and stop by Wax 'n' Wix.

To see photos, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Lake George holiday planner.

In September, daytime highs in Lake George are 74°F, while nighttime lows are 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
