Lake George Area Prepares for Independence Day with Safe Reopening of Attractions, Hiring Push

The Lake George region is continuing to reopen safely as July 1 ushers in Phase Four for the Capital Region!

This means more attractions will be open for the July 4th Weekend, including museums at limited capacity and historic sites in addition to beaches, hiking and all of the outdoor attractions and recreation that were permitted to open in earlier phases. New and returning retailers have opened their doors. Restaurants are open for limited capacity indoor and outdoor dining with beautiful views. A variety of accommodations are booking up fast. Historical sites and museums offer another way to celebrate the country’s independence.

At a press conference on Thursday, July 2, officials unveiled new lawn signs for Warren County that encourage people to wear a mask, maintain social distancing, and wash their hands.

Pictured above from the press conference, which took place at the Lake George Steamboat Co., from left to right are:

  • Lake George Village Mayor Robert Blais
  • Warren County Tourism Director Joanne Conley
  • Adirondack Regional Chamber of Commerce President/ CEO Michael Bittel
  • Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce & CVB Executive Director Gina Mintzer
  • Lake George Steamboat Co. Patricia Dow

Businesses are looking to fill more than 500 positions in the area. This is the perfect time to start a new career in hospitality in the most beautiful place on earth! (OK, Maybe we're a little biased.) The new website is live and features information about many of these opportunities.

Health & Safety

Businesses and organizations within the destination are continuing to show their dedication to health and safety. In addition to fulfilling the mandatory requirement of affirming the New York State Guidelines, businesses are voluntarily taking the Lake George Region/ Southern Adirondacks Health & Safety Pledge. More than 120 businesses have taken the pledge and are displaying the badge on their websites and digital marketing as well as at their physical locations as window clings are being distributed by the Adirondack Regional Chamber of Commerce and Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce & CVB.
