It’s easy to see why the Lake George Area has been a summer vacation destination for generations. Swimming in Lake George provides the antidote for scorching hot summer days. Spread a towel on a sunny beach just off the main strip in Lake George, or choose a small beach in one of the region’s other relaxing communities. Amusement parks offer heart-pounding rollercoasters, heat-beating waterparks, and adventure for the entire family. Putt around an Adirondack-themed mini-golf course, discover the secrets of Lake George on one of the region’s boat cruises, belt out every word to your favorite songs at summer concerts, or escape to wooded hiking trails. And make sure you book a place to stay this summer so you can experience it all! Come see for yourself why summer is the season to visit the Lake George Area.
