An Adirondack treasure, a fun-filled vacation spot... Lake George is the place to go when you want to do it all. Lake George, located in the foothills of the Adirondacks, is approximately 32 miles long and is nearly 3 miles wide. Much of the shoreline is unsettled, and through federal and state conservation efforts, will remain so. Small communities surround the lake, each lending its own unique style and way of life.
Of these, the village of Lake George offers the largest mix of attractions, restaurants, shops and nightlife. You can walk within a two-block radius and rent a boat, watch a war reenactment, relax on the beach, take a cruise, play miniature golf, parasail, hit the arcades, ride in a horse drawn carriage, have a cocktail overlooking the lake, or just relax on a bench and watch the world go by. The variety of sounds, images, and tastes are as varied as the people who flock to Lake George each year to enjoy a relaxed and fun-filled vacation.
The area has been a destination for many years for groups holding conventions. The sales director for a large meeting facility in the Village of Lake George says that annual meetings, conferences, and conventions account for about half of her company's yearly business. Most groups that hold meetings at her site range in size from 15 to 250 people, although for large events the facility has handled up to 10,000 people. Typically, the facility provides meeting space and meals, and helps to coordinate events at other local destinations, such as boat tours or sightseeing trips.
