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.
Explore Lake George's surroundings by going to Ticonderoga (Star Trek Original Series Set Tour & Fort Ticonderoga). And it doesn't end there: take in the awesome beauty at Prospect Mountain, cool off at The Great Escape & Hurricane Harbor, explore the activities along Lake George, and examine the collection at House of Frankenstein Wax Museum.

Plan my trip to Lake George with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Traveling by car from Lake Placid to Lake George takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Expect somewhat warmer evenings in Lake George when traveling from Lake Placid in October, with lows around 40°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Thu) early enough to drive back home.
