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.
Relax by the water at Million Dollar Beach and D.A.R. State Park. Get outdoors at Parasailing & Paragliding and Square Eddy Expeditions. Explore Lake George's surroundings by going to Schroon Lake Town Beach (in Schroon Lake), Natural Stone Bridge and Caves (in Pottersville) and Mirror Lake (in Lake Placid). There's much more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Prospect Mountain, explore the striking landscape at Quechee Gorge, make a splash at The Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George.

Expect a daytime high around 82°F in July, and nighttime lows around 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
