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.
Family-friendly places like The Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration and The Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from Lake George: Quechee Gorge (in Quechee), Square Eddy Expeditions (in North Creek) and Lake Placid (Olympic Ski Jump Complex, Mirror Lake, & more). There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Prospect Mountain, catch the contagious excitement of Saratoga Race Course, kick back and relax at Million Dollar Beach, and get your game on at Around the World Miniature Golf.

For where to stay, photos, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Lake George online trip itinerary builder .

August in Lake George sees daily highs of 80°F and lows of 57°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
