Here in the Lake George Area, we don’t let anything rain on our parade, and that includes the weather. A little bit of rain will never ruin a vacation here. When the rain starts to come down and you’re looking for some rainy day activities there are plenty of fun activities that will keep you dry. You can take some swings at the indoor batting cages or go bowling if you’re a sports fan. Shoppers should hit some stores at the Lake George Factory Outlets or stroll Main Street with an umbrella in the region’s remarkable towns.
