Things to do in Lake George – 365

Many of our guests ask us what we recommend doing on their visit to Lake George.

We always enjoy the opportunity to talk about local activities and have many good suggestions, however, we find that many times once our guests arrive it is too late for them to plan out the activities that they want to do. Sometimes it is because they didn’t pack the right clothes or gear, other times because they made some kind of reservation that doesn’t allow time for a certain activity that they would like to do.

So we have decided to include on our website a blog section that contains some of the most common suggestions that we give to our guests. This way they can have an easier time planning ahead and have a better chance of doing everything that they would like to on their trip.

WHAT OUR POSTS INCLUDE

We mostly concentrate on activities in the LK George and Adirondack area, we will also include some dining suggestions.

Whether you stay with us or not, we are sure that you will enjoy our articles and that they will help you plan your trip and enjoy some of the many great attractions that bring so many people to the area every year.

Many are surprised to discover that Lake George is actually a year-round destination. Our most recent blog posts will concentrate on the current season and the activities that you may want to enjoy on a near trip. However, you can scan our older posts for information on the other season in order to better plan a future trip.

AN INSPIRING PHOTO-GALLERY

Below are some pictures and captions that illustrate some favorite activities in the area. Our idea here is to create a photo-gallery of high quality pictures that will inspire you and give hopefully give you some ideas on how to spend your vacation here in Upstate NY!

We will eventually include detailed posts on each of the topics illustrated in the pictures below, but that is a lot of writing 😉 So, if we don’t have a post on a subject that inspires you you might want to google it in order to find out more. If we do have articles on the subject we will include a link to one of them in the picture and caption.

We will divide the pictures according to the seasons. Enjoy!
