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'll discover tucked-away gems like Warren County Bikeway and Ashuwillticook Rail Trail. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lake George: Schroon Lake Town Beach (in Schroon Lake), Adirondack Carousel (in Saranac Lake) and Swedish Hill Winery Tasting Room (in Lake Placid). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Shelving Rock Falls, have some family-friendly fun at Around the World Miniature Golf, play a few rounds at Gooney Golf, and fly down the slopes at McCauley Mountain.

For maps, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, read Lake George holiday planner.

In August, daily temperatures in Lake George can reach 80°F, while at night they dip to 57°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
