Once you have been to Lake George it’s easy to envision you and your family living here all year long. There’s the beautiful lake, majestic mountains, the best of all four seasons and the hospitable locals. But that’s not all. Lake George is more than just the gem of the Southern Adirondack region. It’s a community of inspired people that have built up the village into something that they are very proud of, and love to share.
If you have children, you’ll be glad to know that Lake George, Bolton Landing and all the area school districts offer top notch public education. Their teachers are some of the best in the state, and the districts stay up on the latest standards and the latest technologies. Southern Adirondack schools also offer an abundance of after school and weekend activities and athletics for children (and families) to participate in. Your children will enjoy a rich education and social life by going to one of the local Adirondack public schools.
Schools are just one of the entities in the region that have helped build a strong community here over the years. Public gatherings, celebrations and local events bring people from all over the area together to share each others’ company. This has built strong bonds between neighboring towns and townspeople to the point where virtually nobody is a stranger. It’s not very often when a resident can walk down Main Street without getting honked at or waved to by someone they know.
There is plenty to do in the Lake George area all year round. Residents never have to drive too far on a Saturday morning to hit a festival or farmers market, head out on a local river or lake, take a hike or visit an amusement park. From leaf peeping in the fall to Lake George’s Winter Carnival to tubing down the Hudson in the spring to The Great Escape in the summer, you’ll never run out of things to do in the Adirondacks. All of this is on top of one of the favorite past times in the area – relaxing.
And what better way to wind down than at one of the many great restaurants in Lake George or the surrounding area. A new one seems to open every week, each with a unique style so there’s something for everyone.
The Southern Adirondacks allow residents to get away from heavy traffic, polluted air and noisy streets. These are some of the many reasons why families choose to move to the region. But that doesn’t mean it’s tough to get to. Lake George is an hour from Albany, less than 3 hours from Montreal, and less than a 4 hour drive to Boston or New York City. Taking a weekend getaway to your favorite northeast destinations is easy when you live here.
