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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Lake George: Albany (Erastus Corning II Tower, New York State Capitol, & more), The Clark Art Institute (in Williamstown) and Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home (in Manchester). There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Prospect Mountain, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George, take an in-depth tour of Hyde Hall, and make a splash at The Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Lake George trip itinerary planning tool .

Expect a daytime high around 82°F in July, and nighttime lows around 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
