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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Lake George: Ticonderoga (Star Trek Original Series Set Tour & Fort Ticonderoga). There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Prospect Mountain, learn about winemaking at Adirondack Winery, trek along Lakeshore Trail, and stop by Lake George Olive Oil Co..

To find where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Lake George tour itinerary planner.
