Queen of the American Lakes

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.
On the 17th (Mon), get interesting insight from Adirondack Extreme Adventure Course, then play a few rounds at Gooney Golf, and then do a tasting at Adirondack Winery. Keep things going the next day: get outside with Square Eddy Expeditions, then Head underground at Natural Stone Bridge and Caves, and then fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour.
