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 the city life by going to Lake George and Prospect Mountain. Head to The Hyde Collection Art Museum and Historic Home and Southern Vermont Arts Centerfor some retail therapy. Venture out of the city with trips to Manchester (Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home & Northshire Bookstore). There's lots more to do: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, try to win big at Saratoga Race Course, do a tasting at Adirondack Winery, and get engrossed in the history at The Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration.

For traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Lake George tour itinerary planner.
