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 Million Dollar Beach and The Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom will thrill your kids. Step out of the city life by going to Parasailing & Paragliding and Square Eddy Expeditions. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lake George: Schroon Lake Town Beach (in Schroon Lake), Mirror Lake (in Lake Placid) and Natural Stone Bridge and Caves (in Pottersville). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at The Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration, take in breathtaking views at Quechee Gorge, explore the world behind art at The Clark Art Institute, and take a tour by water with Ski Air Watersports.

To find maps, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Lake George road trip planning app .

Expect a daytime high around 82°F in July, and nighttime lows around 60°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Fri) so you can travel back home.
