Lake George, nicknamed the Queen of American Lakes,is a long, narrow oligotrophic lake located at the southeast base of the Adirondack Mountains, in the northeastern portion of the U.S. state of New York.There is a fun, beachy vibe throughout the very walkable village. Hotels, mom and pop motels, local shops, arcades, mini-golf, beaches, restaurants, pubs, and various entertainment line the village streets. Bright red trolleys transport visitors around the area and steamers and cruise ships ferry vacationers on sightseeing tours and dinner cruises. There are live concerts in the parks and fireworks over the lake.

Some of the surrounding mountains include Black Mountain, Elephant Mountain, Pilot Knob, Prospect Mountain, Shelving Rock, Sleeping Beauty Mountain, Sugarloaf Mountain, and the Tongue Mountain Range. Some of the lake's more famous bays are Basin Bay, Kattskill Bay, Northwest Bay, Oneida Bay, and Silver Bay.

The lake's deepest point is 196 feet (60 m), between Dome Island and Buck Mountain in the southern quarter of the lake. The northern end of the lake that is located near Ticonderoga is considered the southern end of the Champlain Valley, which includes Lake Champlain, as well as the cities Plattsburgh, New York and Burlington, Vermont.

Today, Lake George remains a tourist destination, resort center, and summer colony. A popular activity in the Lake George area is hot air ballooning. One of the nation's oldest gathering of hot air balloons occurs every September in nearby Glens Falls.
