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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Lake Placid (Olympic Ski Jump Complex, Mirror Lake, & more), Quechee Gorge (in Quechee) and Square Eddy Expeditions (in North Creek). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George, take in the awesome beauty at Prospect Mountain, stroll through Million Dollar Beach, and fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour.

To find maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Lake George trip planner .

In August, daily temperatures in Lake George can reach 80°F, while at night they dip to 57°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
