Lake Placid to Bolton Landing, Lake George
Drive Time: 1 hour, 25 minutes | Distance: 77 miles
The first part of today’s journey is a beautiful drive along the Adirondack High Peaks Byway, then continues southbound on the Adirondack Northway to the small village of Bolton Landing – on the west side of the lake, with all the charm and views of Lake George but less of the crowds. Nicknamed Queen of the American Lakes, Lake George is just 10 minutes away with everything from
winter skiing to boat cruises, shopping to spas, rock climbing to whitewater rafting and tubing, to fabulous galleries and museums). And for theme-park adventurers, Six Flags is just 25 minutes away too.
