Itineraries to help you plan your trip to the Lake George Region

Itineraries

The first itinerary we shared was “The 12 Best Towns for Fall Foliage” developed by the Warren County Tourism Department. This piece provides maps and easy directions to help people discover all that is available in the 12 towns in Warren County.

Second, we showcased "An Autumn Weekend Getaway in Lake George: 48 Hours of Fall-Filled Fun!" which was developed by Mannix Marketing's LakeGeorge.com.

Third, we are featuring "A Couple's Weekend in the Lake George Area" developed by the Warren County Tourism Department. This itinerary is perfect for a road trip and features activities couples can enjoy while leaf peeping and maintaining a safe distance from others.

 As we continue this promotion, we’re hoping it will make it easier for people to have custom-made fall fun and discover less-crowded places.

 A demanding daylong hike on trails less traveled in the Adirondacks? Biking in rugged terrain? Or antiquing followed by a gourmet dinner? It’s all available in the Lake George region this fall. Leading hospitality organizations have teamed up to provide rich travel and outdoor experiences for visitors — and help local people discover what’s in their backyard while staying safe.

Partnership

Warren County Tourism, LakeGeorge.com, Look Media and Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce & CVB are working together to produce customized weekend itineraries to help visitors make the most of summer’s second act. The itineraries will be distributed via email blasts from the different organizations and promoted through social media on a weekly basis this fall.

 “Summer soaks up the spotlight, but fall is the Lake George region’s best-kept secret, with all the fun of hiking, biking and boating plus spectacular foliage by day and crackling wood fires at night,” said Warren County Tourism Director Joanne Conley. 

“Lake George is the close-to-home escape to fresh air, wide-open space, backwoods, and beautiful back roads,” said Sara Mannix, President of Mannix Marketing, which owns LakeGeorge.com. “We hope to help visitors find the week-long or weekend vacation that really works for them during these beautiful but quieter fall days.”

“Our goal is to help our visitors make choices that lead to a great experience,’’ said Gina Mintzer, Executive Director of the Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce and CVB. “Many people are seeking a break from the stress in a healthy place with wide-open space — but each visitor’s ideal experience can be quite different.’’

Additional itineraries to be unveiled this season will help visitors envision possibilities such as:

— Kick off your fall vacation with a relaxing, handcrafted cocktail and dinner at one of the region’s leading farm-to-table, fine dining or wood-fired pizza places. Wake up Saturday for golf overlooking the lake or a moderate hike up Prospect Mountain.  Pause for a leisurely lakeside lunch and a wine tasting by a roaring fire in the evening.  Start Sunday in a kayak or on a stand-up paddleboard, followed by a brunch cruise and tour of Millionaires’ Row.

— Or think romance. Sleep late in the big, comfy beds in one of the Lake George region’s luxury hotels and inns, find the champagne chilled and chocolates on the pillow. Poke around in the antique shops and retail stores. How about a candlelight dinner for two?  A stroll along the shoreline or through the pumpkin patch?

— Or make it a true warriors’ weekend: Take on Tongue or Crane Mountain, rent a mountain bike and tackle the rugged terrain of the southern Adirondacks, and end the day with a brisk run by the lake, followed by a restorative local beer or two along the Adirondack Craft Beverage Trail.
