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.
Start off your visit on the 9th (Fri): contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George. Here are some ideas for day two: make a splash at The Great Escape & Hurricane Harbor, thentake your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Prospect Mountain, thendo a tasting at Adirondack Winery, and finally identify plant and animal life at Veterans Memorial Park.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Lake George trip builder site.
