Christmas is a holiday best spent with family. In the Lake George Area, family is always welcome. From resorts decorated for the season to Adirondack activities to fill a Christmas break, the Lake George Area is full of Christmas cheer.

You can go on vacation and still be home for Christmas. The Lake George Area can be your home away from home this Christmas season. You can stay at a world-class waterfront resort, where you can enjoy Christmas while overlooking Lake George. Invite your whole family to a vacation rental and build a new Christmas tradition. Snowshoe to a mountain top for a Christmas Eve treat. Shop the stores on Main street and envelope yourself in the charm of the small-town Adirondacks, or do your last minute shopping at the Factory Outlets of Lake George. If you’re lucky, there may even be some snow. Now that would be a Christmas miracle.
