FAMILY FUN

The Lake George Area was made for kids.

Every town in the region has things to do that kids will love ... all just waiting to be discovered. From historic amusement parks to miniature golf under the lights to an authentic French & Indian War-era fort, the Lake George Area is a children’s playground.

And Lake George has been a vacation destination for youngsters from the very beginning. With endless kid-friendly activities to enjoy, amazing annual events to attend, and all of the natural beauty of the Adirondack Mountains, there are more fun things for kids to do than can be completed in a lifetime of vacations.

Your kids will love exploring sprawling amusement parks such as Six Flags Great Escape and Hurricane Harbor, or just walking the streets of Lake George Village, stopping for a quick round of mini-golf or testing their skills at the hundreds of games offered by our many arcades!

In winter, the Lake George Area becomes a frosted paradise for kids to experience! Ski centers introduce kids to skiing and snowboarding with safe and exciting lessons. Ice skating and fishing on frozen lakes provide for endless Adirondack activity. And yes, parents, you’re going to have an awesome time too.
