Maybe you’ve vacationed in the Southern Adirondacks your entire life. Or maybe you just returned home from your first weekend in Lake George. More likely it’s somewhere in the middle of that. But whichever the case, you have probably asked yourself what it would be like to live in such a great town all year long.
I’m here to tell you that it is as terrific as you can imagine.
There’s a reason why towns like Lake George evolve into resort towns. It’s because people want to spend time there. And the same reasons why so many people choose Lake George for their vacations each year are just some of the reasons why people choose to live here.
If you spend a weekend, entire week or month in Lake George, you are limited in the number of activities, attractions and adventures you can enjoy that are in and around the village. But if you live here, you are able to take your time and plan how you want to spend your time. After a year or two of living here you will get a handle on when certain activities are more popular than others, and therefor can choose to go when the crowds are smaller. You can also take advantage of off-season pricing from time to time on specific activities (and you’re not limited to just the activities that are happening during the season that you visit).
When you vacation here, you are introduced to amazing people who run the stores, work in the restaurants and make the lake such a beautiful place. Guess what? The people that make Lake George run so smoothly on your visits are the same people that live here. These are your neighbors when you own a home in Lake George.
And don’t forget how great the tourists are. Living in Lake George allows you to meet people from all over the world. It’s amazing how year after year so many nice people head to the area to spend their time.
Although the main streets of Lake George do get busy from time to time (anyone say Americade?) and bring an added level of excitement to the area, that’s definitely not the norm, especially on weekdays and outside of Summer. If the crowds aren’t your thing, it’s easy to avoid them even if you live here. Most homes in the area are well off the main strips, and there’s always something to do in the other towns around the Southern Adirondacks. So while other people are flooding into town for the big events, you can choose to participate or spend a day taking a small vacation of your own outside of Lake George.
