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.
Get out of town with these interesting Lake George side-trips: The Wild Center (in Tupper Lake), Square Eddy Expeditions (in North Creek) and Mirror Lake (in Lake Placid). The adventure continues: make a splash at The Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom, examine the collection at National Bottle Museum, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George.

Expect a daytime high around 80°F in August, and nighttime lows around 57°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
