Lake George, New York is known as the “Gateway to the Adirondack Mountains” but there’s much more to this vacation destination than meets the eye. If it can be done in, on or around the water, you can do it on the 32-mile long “Queen of the American Lakes”- Lake George or any number of mountain laced rivers. Boating, water skiing, jet-skiing, swimming, fishing—each activity has many options for where, when and how.
For swimming there are many public beaches as well as lakeside resorts like Twin Bay Village and hotels that have their own private beaches. Adirondack by Owner is a company that helps visitor’s find unique cabins, condos and lakeside retreats to rent or own.
With a year round dynamic events calendar to hiking the high peaks or caves—visitors have a myriad of unique and exciting things to do during their stay. Six Flags Great Escape Theme Park and Splashwater Kingdom offer three seasons of fun, while their Great Escape Lodge and Indoor Waterpark offer’s a 365 day adventure. Four seasons of activities abound in Lake George with three nearby ski areas that offer… bountiful snow, picture perfect vistas and of course—great ski action! There are even snowmobile trails that lead right to restaurants, gas stations and hotels!
With the Spring comes whitewater rafting, as the area rivers are at their peak, waiting to be tamed by adventurous visitors. Summer and early fall is by far the season for Lake George! Is history important to you?
