Top Answers To Lake George Travel Questions
june64 answered:April is the perfect time to come up and visit, with the arrival of warmer spring weather and before things get too crowded up around the village. It might still be a little chilly out on the water, but you should try get out on the lake, either on a motorized tour or via your own steam through rentals from someone like Lake George Kayak (http://www.lakegeorgekayak.com/). On land, there are miles of great lakeside hiking and biking trails. April is also the start of whitewater-rafting season on area rivers including the Hudson, Black, and Moose rivers. The Moose is probably the wildest, though is a bit further from Lake George itself. Adirondack River Outfitters run trips down the Hudson from their base in North River, 27 miles northwest of Lake George Village (http://www.aroadventures.com/welcome.htm). If you're feeling a bit zany, Gore Mountain has its annual end-of-season pond-skimming championships on April 7; more info here: http://www.goremountain.com/mountain/moreinfo.cfm?id=182
You can find batting cages at Lake George Batting Cages, located at Route 9 and Prospect Mountain Highway (518.668.2531). There are a few driving ranges, including Queensbury Country Club (518.793.3711) and the more high-tech -- and expensive -- Evergreens Indoor Golf Center (518.793.6699).
On its website, Lake George offers a list of activities you and your children can enjoy. Please visit http://www.lakegeorge.com/ThingsToLove/default.cfm/ArticleID/75 for ideas on your future trip.
