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 cultural itinerary includes sights like New Catholic Cemetery and Vermont Marble Museum. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Black Mountain Loop and Ulysses S. Grant Cottage. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lake George: Ashuwillticook Rail Trail (in Adams), The Clark Art Institute (in Williamstown) and Stone Arabia Stone Church (in Palatine Bridge). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Prospect Mountain, stroll the grounds of The Old First Church, see what you can catch with a fishing tour, and see the interesting displays at National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

For reviews, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Lake George day trip planning site .

In August, daily temperatures in Lake George can reach 80°F, while at night they dip to 57°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
