The outdoors call quickly in the Lake George Region
Lake George, New York (PRWEB) June 15, 2015
Lake George is located in NY's Adirondack Mountains and offers a delightful vacation destination for every budget and interest. The village of Lake George has just 900 year 'round residents, but that number swells to many thousands during the Summer months. Vacation accommodations range from camping to luxury suites. The Georgian Lakeside Resort is located right in the Village and features 157 rooms and suites. Georgian guests can take a 5 minute walk into Lake George Village with shops, cafes, restaurants and Shepard Park, home to events, concerts and the weekly (Thursdays) fireworks show.
The outdoors call quickly in the Lake George Region and Lake George itself is the leading attraction. Cruise boats of all sizes ply the waters and offer lake cruises from a short hour cruise to an all day adventure. The Lake George Steamboat Company has offered cruises for almost 200 years (1817) on Lake George and features luncheon and dinner cruises and the fun Minne Ha Ha paddle-wheel steamer, a great hit with kids. See all the cruise boat information on the Georgian Website.
