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 Lake Placid (Olympic Ski Jump Complex, Mirror Lake, & more), The Clark Art Institute (in Williamstown) and Burden Iron Works Museum (in Troy). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George, take in nature's colorful creations at Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home, take an in-depth tour of The Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Prospect Mountain.

For more things to do, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Lake George road trip website .

Expect a daytime high around 80°F in August, and nighttime lows around 57°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
