There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Mirror Lake, identify plant and animal life at Adirondack Wildlife Refuge, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Whiteface Mountain, and look for gifts at Saratoga Olive Oil Company.

Lake George

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Ticonderoga (Star Trek Original Series Set Tour & Fort Ticonderoga). There's much more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Prospect Mountain, look for gifts at Lake George Olive Oil Co., see the interesting displays at House of Frankenstein Wax Museum, and do a tasting at Adirondack Winery.

To see other places to visit, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Lake George trip itinerary maker site.

Drive from Lake Placid to Lake George in 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 October, with lows around 40°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive back home.
