Beginning at Exit 22 of I-87, take Route 9N, Lake Shore Drive, north and you will pass estates and mansions found along this beautiful west side of the lake. Diamond Point, north of Lake George Village, was named for lovely crystal rocks found there. Further north, is Bolton Landing, a hub of activity with shops and restaurants, as well as beaches at Rogers’ Memorial and Veteran’s Memorial Parks. Advancing uphill is Tongue Mountain with a network of hiking trails, where nature fully abides. A steep, windy descent rewards you with a look-out for a spectacular lake and mountain vista. Passing through Sabbath Day Point, you come upon Silver Bay Association and the YMCA lake complex. Three miles north is the delightful four season, unspoiled, and uncrowded resort community of Hague on Lake George in the Adirondack Mountains. Dubbed, “Basstown USA” for its annual major bass tournament held each June, this community is home to the Hague Historical Museum, a wonderful beach and park with a boat launching site, dining, shopping, water sports, hiking, sailing, biking, fishing, camping, golf and more, as well as Fall and Winter activities and events.
