George Shoreline Cruises. Dining aboard either the Lac du St. Sacrament, Horicon or Adirondac while cruising the scenic waters of the 32-mile-long lake will sure to be an experience your group will not forget.
The afternoon can be spent exploring on your own or shopping at the nearby “Million Dollar Half-Mile,” home to over 70 brand-name factory outlet stores. Just down the road you will find Martha’s Dandee Crème, a Lake George landmark for over 50 years. Famous for not only its soft-serve flavors but also its roadside rooster, Martha’s has been featured on The Today Show and is recognized by TripAdvisor as one of the top 10 ice cream parlors in the nation.
What does evening have in store? Be entertained by one of the many theater options in the area. The Lake Theatre offers delicious meals and professional performances at The Holiday Inn Lake George in season. Laura Roth offers cabaret-style entertainment and dinner at The Georgian Resort and a Polynesian-themed dinner show can be found at the Tiki Resort’s Waikiki Supper Club.
Enjoy a sumptuous lunch on the porch of a historic log cabin overlooking gorgeous Thirteenth Lake and the Adirondack Mountains beyond. Garnet Hill Lodge serves authentic, locally sourced dishes with an Adirondack
twist. The outdoor center on-site offers year-round activities such as hiking, biking, paddling, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing for those groups that enjoy soft adventure. On your way back to Lake George Village, be sure to stop in to Oscar’s Adirondack Smokehouse to sample its famous smoked cheeses, meats, and selection of local products such as mustard, maple syrup, goat cheese and sauces. Family-owned and -operated for decades, Oscar’s is truly the hidden gem of the North Country and touted by foodie celebrities such as Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri.
Evening free-time activities can include exploring all the Village of Lake George has to offer. The village is bustling with unique culinary experiences and venues. A must-stop is the Adirondack Winery & Tasting Room for a wine-making demonstration and souvenir wine glass. Drop in to the Adirondack Pub & Brewery and discover the unique process of making authentic, barrel-aged beers and grab a bite for dinner or just relax and enjoy the scenery with a cool drink on a lakeside deck.
