Set beside the storied Queen of American Lakes, the village of Lake George is fun in every season. If the weather's warm, relax on the sand after a swim at Lake George Beach
. Later you can take a narrated dinner cruise with one of the big steamship lines, including Lake George Steamboat Company
and Shoreline Cruises
. After you hear about local history
on a cruise, see it come to life with battle reenactments at the Fort William Henry Museum
In autumn the foliage is spectacular, and in February there's a winter carnival every weekend with winter sports
and activities such as snowmobile races, skating, ice-fishing and ice-sculpting. Springtime is perfect for a drive to the top of Prospect Mountain
for a 100-mile view beyond the lake and mountains.
Shopping on Canada Street and in nearby designer outlets, followed by dinner in one of Lake George's many unique restaurants
, is a popular year-round tradition.
For kids, and the young at heart, not too many activities can beat a trip to Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom
or Water Slide World
. When you stay at the year-round Six Flags Great Escape Lodge
, the fun continues no matter what the weather. Your suite includes admission to White Water Bay, a giant indoor waterpark with slides, lazy rivers, simulated waves, and a special "sun roof" that lets you work on your tan year-round.
