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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Pirate's Cove as well as Buck mountain hiking trail. Explore Lake George's surroundings by going to Square Eddy Expeditions (in North Creek) and Fort Ticonderoga (in Ticonderoga). There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George, get engrossed in the history at Lake George Historical Association and Museum, identify plant and animal life at Prospect Mountain, and kick back and relax at Million Dollar Beach.
