The Lake George Tourist fleet

Lake George, NY, United States
21 Kudos
Lake George is known for its history, spectacular natural beauty and its tourist friendly atmosphere. One of those activities is taking a lake tour on a historic themed boat. There are several to choose from. Paddle wheel steamers complete with knife bowed, screw vessels. What they all have in common is the authentic appearance of a steamer from when these type boats were the primary means of transportation on this large lake. The tours were still running when I was recently there, but they were getting ready to shut down for the season. It may be only October, but the ice will be here sooner rather than later.
