The brilliant thing about vacation time is that there are so many things you can do to unwind. Most importantly, you should completely change the pace of life for the time of vacation. For example, if you work an ordinary office job, sit in front of the computer screen all day, the best you can do to actually reset your mind is to spend some time surrounded by nature and forget about technology. Lake George is a perfect place for that.
The town is located on the bank of a namesake lake on the North-East of the New York state. It is a part of Adirondack region surrounded by mountains and an age-old forest. It is also a historical area that has a restored 1755 British fort situated on the lake’s shore and historic compounds nearby. Today, the fort serves as the Fort William Henry Museum & Restoration.

Things to Do in Lake George
One of the main attractions in Lake George is the Million Dollar Beach that offers a boat launch and picnic areas. Let yourself enjoy a complete one-eighty from the fast-paced city life on a slow boat ride across the lake or take a stroll around the Lake George Recreation Park. And definitely organize a picnic by the lake, if you are visiting with family.
There is also a monster themed House of Frankenstein wax museum and a vintage courthouse displaying mid-19th-century artifacts, that you can visit during daytime. But there are also many beaches around the town and a mini-golf, so you will most certainly be entertained the whole duration of your stay, no matter how short or long it is.
Shepard Park in the town’s center also has a beach and playground with slides and a bouncy castle. On top of that, it has an amphitheater for summer music concerts and holds weekend events. There are food places around the park, but you can take the food with and have a picnic on the beach. Some people like this place so much they stay here all day long.
The high season in Lake George is June through September which are the warmest months of the year. If you are a fan of classical music, you should visit Lake George in August when the Lake George Music Festival is held. On the other hand, if you love hiking, April, May, September, and October are more suitable for active pass time. And fans of winter sports can enjoy the rest of the months in nearby resorts.
