Roosevelt) and Bushkill Falls (in Bushkill).

A playground for America’s wealthy families, Lake George was nicknamed "Queen of the American Lakes." While these families often stayed in private country houses, a tourism industry built up around them in the early 20th century facilitated by two YMCAs.
Start off your visit on the 28th (Tue): admire the masterpieces at Williams College Museum of Art, thendo a tasting at Adirondack Winery, and then take in the awesome beauty at Prospect Mountain. On the next day, explore the landscape on two wheels at Warren County Bikeway, thenplay a few rounds at Gooney Golf, and then get engrossed in the history at Lake George Historical Association and Museum.
