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.
Change things up with a short trip to Mirror Lake in Lake Placid (about 1h 35 min away). There's much more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Prospect Mountain, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George, learn about winemaking at Adirondack Winery, and enjoy the sand and surf at Million Dollar Beach.
