Queen of the American Lakes

A playground for America’s wealthy families, Lake George was nicknamed "Queen of the American Lakes." While these families often stayed in private country houses, a tourism industry built up around them in the early 20th century facilitated by two YMCAs. Both of these facilities remain open and host thousands of summer guests. Other resorts have popped up since the 1900s because the beauty of the lake is hard to resist. Water activities draw visitors for waterskiing, swimming, boating, and fishing. Whether you only want to go to Lake George, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly United States family vacation planner.
