Maybe you're looking for rainy day activities. Maybe someone spent a little too much time in the sun and needs a break from the afternoon heat. Or maybe you're savvy enough to realize that all the fun to be had in Lake George isn't necessarily outdoors or on the lake.

Whatever your reason for looking for indoor activities, there are plenty of adventures to be had in and around Lake George - from an indoor water park to winery tasting rooms and more.

Stop for a Tasting at Adirondack Winery
