Take A Day Trip To Lake George

Located about a half hour's drive from Saratoga Springs is the southern end of the "Queen of American Lakes", Lake George. The village of Lake George is a perfect day trip destination for those who live in or are visiting Saratoga, and offers a wide variety of outdoor activities both on and off the lake, as well as great shopping and fun amusements. Combine this with numerous restaurants and pubs, many with decks providing excellent lake views, and you'll find there's always something to do in the Lake George region.

In Lake George Village, take advantage of boat rentals, cruises, and parasailing, or explore the great shops and restaurants by the lake. If you want to keep it simple, take a walk around the village, along the promenade or just relax at one of the area's public beaches. Stop by the Adirondack Winery on Canada Street to sample delicious, award-winning wines. Or if you decide to take a drive up to Bolton Landing - just 20 minutes north on Route 9N - why not head over to the Winery's newest tasting room?

For more fun in the sun, Water Slide World is your summer destination in the village! With pools, tube rides, and - of course - some fantastic waterslides, there's something for every member of your family to enjoy!

Located just south of the village in Queensbury, Six Flags Great Escape is another must for any trip to the Lake George region. Hop on a roller coaster, play classic carnival games, or take a dip at the Hurricane Harbor waterpark (formerly known as Splashwater Kingdom). Visiting on a rainy day? The Factory Outlets, located between The Great Escape and Lake George Village, contain five malls in four shopping centers. With over 50 stores featuring brands like L.L. Bean, Tommy Hilfiger, DKNY, and Adidas, you're sure to find that special gift or perfect fit for your wardrobe.

Of course, one of the main attractions in the area is the lake itself -- 32 miles of pristine waters are surrounded by the beauty of the Adirondack Mountains. Ready to plan your day trip? From leisurely afternoons by the shore to thrilling theme park adventures, the Lake George region makes for the perfect getaway!
