At the Lake Crest Inn, our guests love spending sunny days enjoying our private beach, lazing around the pool, and relaxing on the sun deck while working on their tans. But sometimes the clouds roll in and we get a rainy day that calls for a change in plans.
Don’t let a little bad weather dampen your vacation enthusiasm. The Lake George region offers all kinds of activities from historical to cultural to just downright fun that are minutes away from Lake Crest Inn.
Shopping: You can’t beat the Lake George Outlets for bargains and quality stores. If you don’t mind strolling with an umbrella there are also a wide variety of shops up and down Canada Street. After the shops, adults can visit the Adirondack Winery’s Lake George Tasting Room to treat their palates to some great local vintages.
Family fun: If you’re determined to find water activities no matter what the weather is like, get a day pass and slide the day away at Six Flags Great Escape Indoor Water Park in Queensbury. Have some real fun at Lake George Lanes and Games or get creative at Wax ‘n’ Wix Candle Making Studios. For those who like Halloween fun year-round, have a laugh with some scary fun at Dr. Morbid’s Haunted House and the famous House of Frankenstein Wax Museum.
History: The Adirondack region has an interesting history going back centuries. You can learn more about it at local spots including the North Creek Depot or Bolton Historical Society Museums. Learn more about Lake George’s revolutionary war era history at Fort William Henry in the Village and Fort Ticonderoga on the north side of the lake.
Cultural: See famous works of art at the Chapman Museum or the Hyde Collection and listen to world-class music at The Sembrich. Take in a show at the Park Theater and enjoy a great meal with top-notch entertainment at the Lake George Dinner Theater.
These activities just scratch the surface of everything there is to see and do in Lake George. If you need help or are looking for some local insight, our friendly staff is always ready to lend a hand to make sure you enjoy your time at Lake Crest Inn.
