Vacationers Have Been Flocking Here Since the Mid-1800s

Imagine relaxing under the stars from the deck of an old-fashioned paddle-wheeler while reminiscing about the glorious view you hiked to earlier that day. Or maybe you spent the afternoon at a sandy beach after an adrenaline-packed morning at an amusement park. You must be in Lake George! Urbanites have spent their vacations here since the mid-1800’s spurred by William H.H. Murray’s Adventures in the Wilderness, a combination guidebook and collection of short stories about this region of the Adirondacks. Murray took the train to Lake George for its fresh air, clear water and majestic, wildlife-laden forests. The “Queen of American Lakes” still offers that today, but now with a bustling village and every modern amenity. It’s time to plan your Adirondack getaway!
