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.
You've now added Erie Canalway National Visitors' Center to your itinerary. The Clark Art Institute and The Saratoga Automobile Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Head to The Hyde Collection Art Museum and Historic Home and Wax 'n' Wixfor some retail therapy. Get out of town with these interesting Lake George side-trips: The Old First Church (in Bennington), Saratoga Monument (in Victory Mills) and Plymouth (Calvin Coolidge Homestead & President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site). The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George, steep yourself in history at John Brown Farm State Historic Site, identify plant and animal life at Prospect Mountain, and examine the collection at Lake Champlain Maritime Museum.
