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 itinerary includes some good beach time at Schroon Lake Town Beach and Moffitt Beach. Appreciate the collections at Arkell Museum and The Saratoga Automobile Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Lake George: Albany (Albany Pine Bush Preserve, Albany Institute of History & Art, & more), Paradox Brewery (in Schroon Lake) and Ulysses S. Grant Cottage (in Wilton). The adventure continues: tee off at Gooney Golf, explore the different monuments and memorials at New Catholic Cemetery, appreciate the extensive heritage of Feeder Canal Trail, and admire the masterpieces at Williams College Museum of Art.
