Named after a British king, and dubbed the Queen of American Lakes, this narrow, glimmering stretch of water runs 32 miles long from Lake George Village at its southern tip to Ticonderoga on the north shore. In the west, it is overlooked by mighty Prospect Mountain, in the foothills of the beautiful Adirondacks. Glacier-formed Lake George gained popularity as a summer vacation spot in the 1950s, and its landscape makes it a good spot to pair forest bathing with beach bathing.
