Beauty and excitement await visitors to the Town of Lake George, well-known as a vacation haven for centuries. Once you’ve been to the top of Prospect Mountain for a breathtaking view of the Lake and mountains, as far away as Vermont and New Hampshire, you’ll understand why it is a popular place. Visit the Old Court House, built in 1845, which still has the original jail in the basement where (it is said) many of the “unhappy guests” still roam. It also houses a museum with war artifacts, a historical book store and library. Main Street is always a bustle as people love to spend time visiting the shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants. In the evening, a walk along the waterfront is a must. Autumn in Lake George is truly magnificent as the radiant kaleidoscope of color on the mountains is reflected in the sparkling waters of Lake George. The Town’s rich, historical past comes to life in September for the 250th Commemoration of the French and Indian War and 1757 Reenactment of the Siege of Fort William Henry. During the holiday months, the Victorian themed park and streets will warm the heart with the spirit of Christmas. Each February the Town hosts a winter carnival every weekend with fun activities for kids and adults including snowmobile and outhouse races, skating, fishing and ice sculpting, just to name a few. Discover for yourself a grand destination — Lake George!
