Fall in the Lake George Area is about vibrant foliage and festive events. Fall foliage morphs the mountains’ colors from a familiar green into vast swathes of deep oranges and burning reds. Boat rentals, steamboat cruises, and scenic drives around Lake George can help uncover every shade of color. Fall weekends offer a cornucopia of lively events, including Oktoberfests overflowing with beer and harvest festivals brimming with children’s activities. Other things to do in the fall include quick hikes to stunning views of Adirondack foliage, craft beer and cider tastings, and spooky Halloween events. When the temps start to cool, and the leaves begin to change, it’s time for a visit to the Lake George Area.
