Lake George, NY Master Thread
« on: July 31, 2011, 03:52:48 AM »
Anyone have any good ideas where to stay?
Where are minyanim located during the summer?
What are the best places to visit/activities for 2 days?
Kosher food?

There is no starwood hotels there, & most are old motels, there is a nice Comfort suites there which is good for family with kids its not in the center of lake george town but its very close & its also about a mile away from the minyan
I stayed there 4 years ago when they just opend & again this march on a drive back from montreal

minyan only opens after tisha ba'av otherwise there is a belz yeshiva in saratoga springs
I just stayed with a camp at the Ramada in Queensbury about 10 min outside Lake george and it was fine.
Activities: six flags, tubing/rafting on the Hudson, steamboat on Lake George, swimming in the Lake, ropes course about 20 min north called Adirondack Extreme was awesome, fireworks on the lake at 9:30 PM on Thursday and special days, go carting/laser tag at the fun spot or adventure racing in queensbury

In lake george the best lodging for a family would be to rent a cabin. The minyan in in a tent on bloody pond rd. If you prefer to sleep in a motel, the travelodge will give you a discount for mentioning the lake george minyan. In general, its a beautiful place, don't know specific attractions though (the lake). The price chopper there (local grocery store) brings in a relativeky decent selection of kosher food for the summer. Previously, the number for the minyan was (518)522-8478. Call him for more info

Anyone been to Lake George lately?
I'm thinking of doing a quick getaway there on Sunday for like 2-3 days. I haven't a clue about the place and don't have much time to research. Would appreciate any tips such as what to do, where to stay, what's there for kids etc.
