Go to Lake George for an Idyllic Lake Vacation
Known as the "Queen of American Lakes," Lake George is one of the best places in the U.S. to enjoy fresh water. While the long lake has several communities on its shore, none are as popular as the town that bears its name.
Come to Lake George (the town) for 19th-century architecture, a surprisingly refined dining scene and views of the Adirondack Mountains.
Summer is the busiest time, when people set out on kayaks and paddleboards to explore the lake. From the shore, you can see working steamboats traversing the water. But fall brings its own charm. You probably won't be swimming, but you'll get to leaf-peep in one of the prettiest spots in New York State.
