Lake George

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.
Step out of Lake George with an excursion to Square Eddy Expeditions in North Creek--about 36 minutes away. There's still lots to do: get interesting insight from Tours, cool off at The Great Escape & Hurricane Harbor, kick your exploration up a notch at Adirondack Extreme Adventure Course, and trot along with a tour on horseback.

For traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Lake George visit planning tool.

Traveling by car from Lake Placid to Lake George takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of bus, train, and taxi. Expect a bit warmer evenings in Lake George when traveling from Lake Placid in August, with lows around 57°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Wed) so you can drive back home.
