Yes, you can take a hike on one of the many trails or mountains in the area. Or, you can kick the experience up a notch by heading out super early to gaze at an Instagrammable sunrise. Cat Mountain in Bolton Landing is pictured above.

Bring your bicycles or rent (Beach Road Bait & Tackle offers rental bikes) and hit the bikeway - the Warren County Bikeway, that is. The biking and hiking trail runs about 10 miles from Lake George to Glens Falls, and there are other bike trails close by.

Cross Parasailing Off the Bucket List

Parasailing Adventures offers the unique chance to see Lake George from 300 feet above. When you look back on your lives and adventures together, this experience is sure to rank towards the top. Although we think of this as a summer activity, they do open for the season on May 5, 2021.

Cool Off With a Sweet Treat

Sometimes the best dates are the simple ones. When you're ready to switch gears from summiting mountains and parasailing over the lake, grab a couple of ice cream cones from Nina's Sweet Shoppe.

Relax on the Beach

When it's too hot to move, head to one of Lake George's beaches with a giant umbrella in one hand and a large towel in the other. Enjoy mountain and water sights as you take advantage of your downtime.

Get Spooked on a Ghost Tour

Fort William Henry is the prime Lake George haunted hotspot that offers guided ghost tours. It won't be too scary making your way around the 18th century fortress at night if you have your partner in crime next to you, right?

Cheers to Your Coupledom

Although you can visit nearly any winery, brewery, or distillery year-round, we love the idea of a fall wine tasting date at Adirondack Winery. If you're visiting in October make sure to take advantage of their limited edition Drink Pink wines for a great cause.

Strap on Your Riding Boots

Remember that sleigh ride you can take in the winter? The same company, Circle B Ranch, offers horseback riding as well. Stroll along a scenic trail and take in the foliage in a whole new way.

Lose Yourselves in a Corn Maze

Speaking of the foliage, our last two recommendations for fall take you on a picturesque drive to your destination. Work together to solve the clues in Fort Ticonderoga's corn maze, about an hour north of Lake George. The maze is typically open August through October

View the Foliage in a Special Way

In a typical year, ice bars are a huge draw to Lake George in the winter. Although most aren't happening for 2021, another option is to get cozy at a bar or restaurant that offers a fireplace. You might even be able to get a reservation right next to the fire!

Snuggle Together on a Sleigh Ride
