Nestling beneath the Adirondack Mountains, Lake George with its crystal clear waters is an idyllic spot for a holiday. The possibilities for outdoor activities seem almost endless, from boating or fishing in summer to snowmobiling or skiing in winter. Why not think about renting your accommodation, rather than going for the obvious choice of a pricey hotel? In a cabin by the lake or a house in the town, you will have freedom and space to relax. A fully equipped kitchen will allow you to cook your favourite food whenever it suits you.
On the shores of Lake George you can choose whether to soak up the sun on a beach or go walking in the wilderness. For a change, why not take a sailing lesson at the Yankee Boating Center at Diamond Point? When it comes to cruises, you will be spoilt for choice: there are historic themes, or you could take a moonlight cruise on a Thursday and witness a spectacular firework display. For a stunning bird's-eye view of the lake and mountains, hot-air ballooning is just the thing. If it's a round of golf you're after, there are four eighteen-hole courses, such as Cronin's Golf Course in Warrensburg, as well as several nine-hole courses and miniature golf for the whole family.
Your children are bound to want to spend some time at the beach, and the best one for them is Usher's Park Beach. When they are bored, head along to Water Slide World where they can play volleyball or take a tube ride, and your youngest can have fun at Pirate Ship Cove. If that isn't enough, try the Great Escape Splashwater Kingdom; as well as having fun in the water, you can pet animals or ride rollercoasters. Almost every evening in summer there is entertainment in Shepards Park where a family picnic would go down a treat. If you're feeling like an indoor activity for a change, the World Awareness Children's Museum in Glen Falls has interactive exhibits as does Fort William Henry Museum on Lake George's Canada Street.
Whether you're craving horse riding or white-water rafting, forests or waterways, Lake George has a wealth of attractions to tempt you.
