Lake George, located in the southeastern Adirondack Park in New York State, is rightfully nicknamed the "Queen of American Lakes." This gorgeous gem has been a hot spot for tourism since the late 19th century, and was even frequented by well-known and wealthy families such as the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, and Roosevelts. Flights to Lake George are best routed to the Albany International Airport (ALB), which is the most conveniently located major airport just south of the Adirondacks.
Transportation From ALB
Lake George is just 50 miles north of ALB, but if you get in late and are too tired to make the journey the same day, there are a number of lodging options situated all along Wolf Road. From here it's a matter of minutes to get onto the Adirondack Northway (Route 87) up to Lake George. Of course, there are plenty of Lake George hotels to choose from along the shores of the lake itself, once you reach it. Planning your transportation? You can easily rent a car right at ALB and pick it up from the parking garage across the street. If you'd rather rely on public transportation, grab a cab or take one of the CDTA buses over to the Greyhound bus station in downtown Albany or the Amtrak train station in Rensselaer, where you can get Lake George tickets. Whatever season it is, you have plenty of exciting options when it comes to activities on Lake George. Take a swim, rent a boat, catch a few fish, or just lounge on the beach. In the winter, skiing and snowmobiling are the sports of choice! And who could resist the vibrant foliage of autumn? Check out Fort Ticonderoga just to the north for your daily history dose or hike Prospect Mountain for a view. There's enough here to keep you entertained for weeks, so book Lake George vacations today.
