Sometimes the easiest way to relax is a slow meander through the Lake George Area. If you want to explore by car there’s always something new discover.

The Lake George Area is a large place. The best way to see everything the region has to offer is by car. Taking a scenic drive through the Adirondacks is the perfect way to spend a day. Take a joyride through winding back roads, passing under looming trees flush with autumn leaves. Begin in a bustling city and cruise to one of our hiking trails in a small hamlet. Start your afternoon enjoying a sandwich at a waterfront restaurant, and drive to a farm for some locally produced goods before sundown. There are a lot of driving routes to choose from all with something amazing at the end.

Explore communities along the Hudson River, upstream from Glens Falls and west of Lake George which have joined together to celebrate their shared history along the earliest route into the heart of the Adirondack wilderness.
