Nice small city to relax, reflect and walk. Also, the outlets is a 5 mins ride, so get ready to shop and explore some deals that you cannot find on 5th Ave ajjajaj. The lake is too huge to try to swim it! The boat ride is a must! $14.50 each person on the Minnie Ha ha.

Loved lake George! We go up at least once a year. There is plenty to do or just sit and watch life go by. It's a great place to visit. The lake is so clean. The horse and buggy ride was wonderful. Love the irish store!

The lake its self along with the beach is beautiful. There are great places to eat and shop. The Steam Boat tours are excellent. You get to see all the islands, mansions, and coves on the lake.

Was nice to walk along the lake along the shops and people. Village center gave you the experience without being overly rustic. When you look across the lake looks under developed and preserved in some way.
