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.
Get out of town with these interesting Lake George side-trips: Bennington Battle Monument (in Bennington), The Clark Art Institute (in Williamstown) and Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home (in Manchester). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Prospect Mountain, learn about winemaking at Adirondack Winery, see the interesting displays at National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, and fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour.

To see maps, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Lake George trip planner .

In August, daily temperatures in Lake George can reach 80°F, while at night they dip to 57°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
