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.
Explore Lake George's surroundings by going to Lake Placid (Olympic Ski Jump Complex, Mirror Lake, & more), The Wild Center (in Tupper Lake) and Quechee Gorge (in Quechee). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of The Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration, make a splash at The Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom, look for all kinds of wild species at Prospect Mountain, and find something for the whole family at Magic Forest.

To find more things to do, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Lake George sightseeing planner.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 80°F, and evening lows to 57°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
