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.
Attractions like The Great Escape & Hurricane Harbor and The Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from Lake George: Lake Placid (Olympic Ski Jump Complex, Herb Brooks Arena, &more), Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home (in Manchester) and The Apple Barn and Country Bake Shop (in Bennington). The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George, explore the stunning scenery at Quechee Gorge, explore the world behind art at The Clark Art Institute, and learn about winemaking at Adirondack Winery.

For reviews, photos, maps, and other tourist information, read our Lake George journey planner.

August in Lake George sees daily highs of 31°C and lows of 16°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
