Memorial Day is the unofficial kick-off to summer in the Lake George Area. Beaches are open and the water is finally warm enough for a swim. Waterfront restaurants welcome guests for a craft beer and some live music. There’s nothing like a long weekend in the Lake George Area.

Celebrate the Unofficial Start to Summer

Memorial Day is the first long weekend of the summer, and long weekends are best spent in the Lake George Area. The sidewalks are jam-packed with visitors, and every business is ready for another busy season. Rental marinas have their fleets in the water, inviting you to catch some rays. Lakeside resorts greet guests with a hello and a handshake after a long Adirondack winter. You can hit the beach and work on that tan or shop at the Factory Outlets of Lake George for a charming early summer outfit. Get your thrills at an amusement park like the Great Escape, or bring your family to a theme park such as the Fun Spot. Admire the Adirondack Mountains over dinner at a waterfront restaurant. Celebrate the reason for the holiday by heading to Fort William Henry or a local history museum. Don’t forget about the Memorial Day parades!
