Lake George NY: Top Tips Before You Go

My family visited Lake Geroge this summer and boy was it an experience. I thought it would be cool to share with you a few tips that will make you have the best trip EVER when visiting Lake Geroge.

Book in advance 

Lake George is a summer vacation spot. The early bird defiantly catches the warm. Book early! At least a couple of months in advance. Some people even book a year in advance. Yes, it's one of those vacation spots. I would also suggest checking the reviews of the place you plan on booking prior to making your reservation. Trust me, the pictures that the hotel provides most of the time looks totally different from what the room looks like in reality. This is where reviews play a major role. You should also figure out what type of room you would like to book. Are you more of a cabin or hotel person? Lake George has so many different options. So it is really based on what you prefer.

Double Check the Weather

I know this may sound simple. We live a couple of hours from Lake George and was having a heat wave prior to visiting. We checked the weather and I was hoping the weather was going to change of course we all want the perfect weather while on vacation. However, it did rain. Make sure you check the weather and plan accordingly. Because Lake Geroge is more of an outdoors vacation spot. So you will most likely spend a lot of your time outdoors. Create an itinerary for normal weather and a plan B option just in case it rains.


Do your research before hand of restaurants you plan on eating at. Depending on your lodging plans. You may have a full kitchen where you're staying at. Do you plan on eating out for each meal? or do you plan on cooking? Where our hotel was located at was when a walking distance to Price Choppers. I loved that the prices weren't hiked up like so places because it's a tourist area. I also noticed that a lot of people do bring their own food. Figure out what works best for you and your family. Downtown Lake George has a good amount of restaurants. some even deliver.


If you're thinking about visiting Lake George make sure to look into Groupon's. Most likely if you're visiting you have this trip booked way in advance. I would suggest looking into and seeing what's available a couple of months prior to your trip and up until the day of your trip. Remember that some Groupon's expire in a couple of months. Check the expiration date and the small print prior to purchasing. Groupon really did come in handy when we were looking for places to eat at and activities.
