70% Off!

Locals call it the Million Dollar Half Mile. The Factory Outlets of Lake George are home to more than 50 stores offering steep discounts on national brands and designer merchandise. Seasonal sales, clearance markdowns, and BOGO deals are the norm year-round. The four outlet shopping centers are located within walking distance of each other, so you can park once and shop all day. Parking is free and plentiful. Pedestrian crosswalks make it safe and easy to zigzag across Route 9 in search of the latest bargains.


The Four Centers

Shoe Store

There are four main outlet centers (although some would argue there are five because one center is divided between two buildings.) They are easy to get to, located just off Exit 20 of the Adirondack Northway (I-87) and only two miles south of Lake George Village. For those coming from Vermont and other points east, NY Route 149 brings drivers right through the Million Dollar Half Mile.

Each center has public restrooms, an ATM machine and vending machines filled with cold drinks. There is a Stewart’s shop in front of the French Mountain Commons. There you can pick up snacks, grab an ice cream cone, and fuel up your car.

Tip: Start your shopping at the Moose on the Loose Deli in the French Mountain Commons where you can pick up a Lake George Outlets coupon book. The coupons offer dollars-off deals, 10% to 20% discounts and a few freebies. While at the Moose on the Loose, you might want to fuel up your shopping excursion with a hearty Moose Wrap breakfast sandwich.

Tip: Long weekends are long on bargains. Labor Day, Presidents Day, Columbus Day and other holiday weekends bring in shoppers from all over to snatch up the deals. If you plan to shop at the Lake George Outlets at these times, expect heavier than usual traffic. Traffic lights and center turning lanes help vehicles move along, but expect some stop-and-go as you drive the Million Dollar Half Mile on holiday weekends.


Log Jam Outlet

Log Jam Outlet

This is the place to find your favorite clothing brands — classic to trendy — for men, women, and children. Here you can shop for a smart power suit, high-tech running shorts, a leather bomber jacket, and adorable outfits for the kids. Are you looking for the perfect statement necklace to complete your look? Chico’s has dozens! The Log Jam Outlet also has a Le Creuset filled with colorful tableware, perfect for shower and wedding gifts.

  • All Things Home By Big Moose Furniture
  • Big Moose Furniture Outlet
  • Brooks Brothers
  • Carter's

Tip: Discounts of up to 60% are routine at the outlets, but you can save even more during the semi-annual sales. The end of July is when clothing stores are moving out merchandise to make room for fall styles. Look for another sale in February (Winter Carnival season!) to make room for spring fashions.


More Bargains Nearby

Orvis Outlet

Just north of the four main Lake George Outlet Centers, you can find more bargain shopping at Orvis Outlet, Super Shoes, Family Footwear (which regularly has outdoor tent sales), Sox Market and DXL Menswear. And don't forget your year-round fishing essentials at  Fish 307.com. These stores are at the intersection of State Routes 9 and 149 at the North End of the Million Dollar Half Mile.


Plan your Lake George Outlet Shopping Trip

The Lake George Area is America’s original vacation destination, and it is easy to get in some shopping time while enjoying all the activities, events and spectacular beauty of the region. The area’s official tourism site, VisitLakeGeorge.com, maintains a searchable database that makes finding the perfect accommodations a breeze.

Tip: The Greater Glens Falls Transit system runs a trolley from Glens Falls to Lake George with stops at the outlets. Most Lake George area hotels, motels, and campgrounds are on the route. This is a good transportation option if you prefer to leave your vehicle behind.
