Things to See and Do

Lake George, “The Queen of American Lakes”, is 32 miles long, 201 feet deep, boasts 172 islands and 28,200 acres of “play ground” for sailing, island camping, and scuba diving.

The Lake George Region has something for everyone – history buffs, outdoorsmen, water lovers, bookworms, kids, families, and those seeking amazing scenery. Whether you spend your days parasailing, hiking, antiquing, horseback riding, swimming, fishing, boating or shopping, your stay will be memorable.

We advise people to explore the area, especially the quaint village of Bolton Landing with its many restaurants, shops and public parks. Families love the Village of Lake George with its Million Dollar Beach, historic Fort William Henry, and plenty of miniature golf courses, water slides, amusement parks and arcades for the kids. There’s even a trolley available to transport you throughout the area.

The history of the region is rich and the site of many Revolutionary and French and Indian war battles. In addition to touring Fort William Henry, just a short ride north brings visitors to Fort Ticondergoa, another important site as it protected the United States from enemies approaching from either Lake Champlain or Lake George. Both forts provide guided tours to the public.

Most of all, we highly encourage visitors to see Lake George from the water. Whether you bring your own boat, rent one or enjoy a relaxing day on one of the many tour boats which grace the lake with several daily excursions, the beauty of the area is best appreciated afloat.
