The Lake George Area is an arts and theater hotspot. From professional quality plays to arts festivals celebrating the region, arts and theater is an important facet of a Lake George Area vacation.

The arts and theater scene is a constantly growing boon in the Lake George Area. The region is a rich cultural hotspot that can fill an entire vacation. From the larger towns to the small hamlets, art museums, professional concerts, and galleries of all kinds are part of the local fabric.

Check out the Hyde Collection where you can admire an art collection that includes work by renowned artists such as Rembrandt, Picasso, and van Gogh. Attend budding festivals that celebrate the arts and artists such as the Adirondack Film Festival and Adirondack Theater Festival. Both of these events proudly host new films and plays. Head to LARAC in downtown Glens Falls and take in a small art exhibition or an intimate concert. For those who love live entertainment, the Charles Wood Theater is always hosting a comedy show, a concert, or a play for visitors to enjoy.

If exploring the local art scene is part of your perfect vacation the Lake George Area is sure to be a hit.
