New York City is known for museums, nightlife, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, appreciate the history behind Statue of Liberty National Monument, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, and walk around The High Line.

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.
On the 9th (Wed), tour the pleasant surroundings at Charles Lathrop Demonstration Pack Forest, get your game on at Oscar's Smoke House, head outdoors with Square Eddy Expeditions, then examine the collection at Star Trek Original Series Set Tour, and finally learn about winemaking at Adirondack Winery Bolton Landing Tasting Room. On your second day here, examine the collection at Patriot of Lake George Museum, then relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, and then examine the collection at The Sembrich.

To see photos, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read Lake George trip itinerary website.

Getting from New York City to Lake George by car takes about 4 hours. Other options: fly; or do a combination of train and bus. Traveling from New York City in October, things will get a bit cooler in Lake George: highs are around 62°F and lows about 40°F.
