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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like The Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration and Million Dollar Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Square Eddy Expeditions (in North Creek), Lake Placid (Olympic Ski Jump Complex & Mirror Lake) and Quechee Gorge (in Quechee). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Lake George, explore the fascinating underground world of Howe Caverns, cool off at The Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom, and catch the contagious excitement of Saratoga Race Course.

In August in Lake George, expect temperatures between 80°F during the day and 57°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
