The Lake George Area is a complete winter destination, showcasing an unforgettable collaboration of mountain air, hometown flair, unparalleled wilderness, and one of the largest collections of America’s cleanest bodies of water.
The Lake George Area is a collection of unique towns and villages sitting in the southern foothills of the Adirondacks. It is the gateway to a Forever Wild expanse of mountains, forests, and bodies of water peppered with small communities.
Winter is a blast throughout the Lake George Area. January is ice bar season, where professional ice carvers create exquisite sculptures out of massive blocks of ice. These functional bars serve delicious frozen cocktails. February is all about Winter Carnivals. The Lake George Winter Carnival features winter fun like ice races and children’s activities every weekend in February. The Brant Lake Winter Carnival is one amazing day of outhouse racing, the fry pan toss, and other competitions. Flowing sugar maple sap makes March the sweetest month on the calendar in the small town of Thurman. Their Thurman Maple Days event gives families the opportunity to taste Adirondack maple syrup, sugar, and other maple products.
The Lake George Area is also home to some of the best snowmobiling trails in the Adirondacks, fantastic ice fishing, cross-country skiing and ice skating sites, and more.
The Lake George Area is the place to be all summer long! Miles of hiking trails lead to gorgeous mountain summits, amusement parks full of rides and shows, boat rentals for the entire family, sandy beaches, exhilarating whitewater rafting, hundreds of beautiful campsites, and the cleanest lakes around.
