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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Saratoga Race Course. Get outdoors at Lake George and Million Dollar Beach. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home and The Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration. Change things up with these side-trips from Lake George: Saratoga Spa State Park (in Saratoga Springs) and Fort Ticonderoga (in Ticonderoga). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Prospect Mountain and make a splash at The Great Escape & Hurricane Harbor.

To see photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Lake George trip website.

In August in Lake George, expect temperatures between 80°F during the day and 57°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 3rd (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
