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.
You've now added Quechee Gorge to your itinerary. Kids will appreciate attractions like The Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom and Parasailing & Paragliding. Venture out of the city with trips to The Clark Art Institute (in Williamstown), Howe Caverns (in Howes Cave) and Lake Placid (Olympic Ski Jump Complex & Mirror Lake). There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Prospect Mountain, do a tasting at Adirondack Winery, take an in-depth tour of The Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration, and have some family-friendly fun at Around the World Miniature Golf.

For where to stay, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Lake George online trip itinerary planner .

August in Lake George sees daily highs of 80°F and lows of 57°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
