NEW YORK

Lake George

With the skyline of Columbus, Ohio firmly fixed in your rearview mirror, set out to discover the natural and scenic wonders of rural New York. The antithesis of the concrete jungle, the wilds of New York evoke a state of rarified quietude. Poets and Presidents and all classes of people have succumbed to her mystical charms. The mountains effuse an ancient history; the land washed pure by lake water, rivers and pristine alpine pools. Your Road Adventure journey begins where the Interstate ends. Just a day’s drive from Columbus, Ohio, you’ll encounter Lake George, a sapphire-colored gem. Early in American history, the lake played host to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson among other notables. Today, her famed waters and nearby outdoor recreation beckon visitors from around the globe. Those looking for a lively time can explore a decades-old amusement park or the biggest marble cave in the east. If you prefer a more relaxing attraction, a cruise on Lake George or a drive up Prospect Mountain is always a good time. Make sure to check out the Revolution Rail Company and pedal along historic railroad tracks above the might Hudson River! Explore a rarely seen section of the Adirondacks under your own power on a railbike. Your tour guide leads you on a 6-mile, round trip ride on historic railroad tracks through beautiful Adirondack forests along the banks of the Hudson River, and then over the Hudson on a spectacular trestle bridge.
