Did you know the American vacation was birthed in the Adirondacks more than two centuries ago? And that the rugged yet pristinely beautiful Lake George was the hot spot for the “Original American Vacation?” 
 


 
Those 200 years saw the Lake George Area transformed from a challenging outdoor adventure of yesteryear into what it is today – an all-encompassing getaway full of therapeutic treks on well-groomed mountain trails, water fun in the lake or sunbathing on the beach, romantic nights in luxurious resorts, refreshing craft beer destinations and scrumptious meals at relaxed waterfront pubs and bistros or an intimate dinner prepared by one of the area’s renowned chefs.

 
With something for everyone from families, to couples to nature lovers, Lake George is truly the vacation destination. Its majestic lakes and mountains, historic roller coasters and modern water parks, idyllic waterfront lodging and more have made a getaway to Lake George into an American tradition.

 
So, grab your bathing suits, fishing rods or ski gear and get ready to forge memorable adventures made up of days on a sandy beach, hikes to picturesque mountain summits, ice skating on a frozen lake, catching trout from back-country steams, the thrill and excitement of an amusement or water park or Nordic or cross-country skiing through snow-covered trees.


Money Magazine named Lake George as one of  the 20 Best Places to Go both in the U.S. and internationally that delivers the highest value for your dollar.
