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.
Explore Lake George's surroundings by going to Square Eddy Expeditions (in North Creek) and Ticonderoga (Fort Ticonderoga & Star Trek Original Series Set Tour). The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George, get interesting insight from Tours, do a tasting at Adirondack Winery, and get engrossed in the history at The Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration.

For other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Lake George trip itinerary maker.

New York City to Lake George is an approximately 4-hour car ride. You can also fly; or do a combination of train and bus.
