Just 45 minutes north of Saratoga Springs, Bolton Landing is a prime destination spot nestled between the Cat and Thomas Mountains Preserve and Lake George Village.
In the late 1800s and early 1900s Bolton Landing became a popular place for the wealthy to vacation in the summer. Hotels sprung up along the shore, including the historic Sagamore Hotel on Green Island. The Sagamore is still thriving today even after having to be rebuilt twice when destroyed by fires.
Bolton Landing is a hot spot in the summer, with beaches, swimming, boating, and more outdoor activities available right on the beautiful Lake George. But don't think the summer season is your only option - in the winter there's cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and ice fishing.
